WCT offers webinars on a variety of topics. From developing agile communications strategies to managing innovation, the webinar series features authors from around the world.
Webinars for the times we work in—spring 2020 series
For most of us, our work lives look a bit different than they did just a few weeks ago. Chances are you are working from home, finding new ways to structure your day and be productive while isolated.
As a community of women at work in Canada’s digital industries, WCT believes these times demand new ways of connecting and learning from one another. For the next two months, we are modifying and accelerating our popular webinar series to bring you more opportunities to engage and be inspired during these uncertain times. Drawing on the talents of the many remarkable and inspiring women in our community, we are offering a series of free webinars designed to educate, uplift, and motivate us to face uncertain times.
WCT webinars are always free to members. Learning and connection has never been more important, so we are offering these webinars to our community (members and non-members) free of charge in April and May. We hope you'll join us over the next couple of months!
All webinars take place from noon-1 p.m. EST. If you are unable to attend, recordings are available to WCT members on our website.
