About this event

This one-day conference is a collaboration event put on by three different GDSC's: Queen's University, Carleton University, and the University of Ottawa. The focus of this conference is to foster spaces of collaboration and making connections, while also highlighting the challenges of gender diversity in the field. The entirety of the conference will be held via Zoom. This conference is composed of three main events:

1. An imposter syndrome workshop - The workshop will focus on identifying imposter syndrome and equipping individuals with some tools to combat it. It will also shine a light on imposter syndrome in minority groups, specifically gender minorities. The workshop presenter will be Alex Radu, a Product Adoption & Marketing Lead for Public Cloud at JPMorgan Chase & Co.

2. A diversity panel - For the panel, we will be joined by four industry panellists who will discuss their experiences of being in the industry and diversity in the industry. Our panellists will be Zuri Godfrey: Associate Product Marketing Manager at Google and Founder of Build & Brand You, Shafina Hassam: Manager, Modern Workplace at BDO Canada, Frances Coronel: Software Engineer at Byteboard, and Marlow Payne: Development Manager at Shopify.

3. A networking session - Attendees will have the opportunity to connect and chat with industry professionals and other attendees, as we finish the conference with a networking session.

We are looking forward to this event, and we hope to see you there!
