About the Report
From the 12th of September 2016 to April 18, 2017, Women in Communications and Technology (WCT) conducted a series of seven roundtable discussions across Canada. Their purpose was to explore the known universe of strategies, policies and programs for the engagement and advancement of women in the digital industries (broadcasting, telecommunications and technology). We set out to learn what was working and not working in present approaches and, hopefully, to encounter new ideas that haven’t been put into practice yet.
Roundtable participants were generous, articulate and in many cases impassioned in the presentation of their views. Many consistent themes emerged in the regional roundtables themselves and across all seven, with clear recommendations for women and employers, which will be available for download.
