Maven is a new community that strives to promote gender parity in the tech sector. ICTAM has strived for over a decade to encourage girls to take an interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) careers and to support women in these fields. We are now launching a new platform to strengthen efforts to achieve parity in tech. Share ideas, stay up to date with the latest in innovation, equality, and keep track of all the exciting events happening in the industry.
Maven is focused on attracting, retaining and advancing women in the Manitoba tech sector. We work with women in tech, employers, educators, students and influencers to help make gender parity the new norm.
MEET OUR PROGRAM COORDINATOR
Meet Maven's Program Coordinator, Amanda Emms. Her passion for parity ignited during her four years working in the film industry in the sets, wardrobe, and art departments. She is thrilled to join ICTAM and its commitment to increase the number of women in technology. Tina Fey's Bossypants is her favourite book, and she will never say no to chocolate.
Maven acknowledges support of Status of Women Canada.
