Women in Tech Peer-2-Peer #24

WomenInTech Peer2PeerNovember 22, 2016  |  7 pm  |  The Ivy, 3330 South Service Road, Burlington

Topic: What it Takes (Part III)

Inspired by the Canadian women rocking the RIO Summer Olympics and the amazing #WhatItTakes campaign from SportChek (Check out the videos here) we are bringing in mentors and coaches to take the limits off of our beliefs and dare greatly in our careers and with our businesses.

This month we have Executive Coach and Leadership Development Consultant Louise Veres leading a workshop breaking patterns of self-doubt to be effective leaders.

The Women in Tech Peer 2 Peer group’s goal is to empower women in business by examining the unique gender based challenges of working in and with technology to effect progressive change within our working and community environments. 

Meet ups are generally for women only who work or live in Halton.  Non-Silicon Halton members are welcome.

Each month we'll have a topic for debate, and an opportunity for individuals to share challenges and successes with the group in a safe, supportive setting. 

Meetup formats may include dinner discussion meetings, guest speaker presentations, or workshops - depending on the topic.
