Stories of Diversity

Want to inspire more diversity in tech?
Stories can shape and define our careers. Think about it.. what stories have shaped who you are? What stories have become a core of what you do, and how have they inspired you to do more, to give more and to become more? We want to diversify the available career stories in tech by showcasing inspiring and diverse people who love their tech jobs.

WANTED:
BRAVE PEOPLE WHO HAVE OVERCOME ADVERSITY AND ARE WILLING TO SHARE THE STORY OF THEIR CAREER JOURNEY IN TECH TO INSPIRE DIVERSITY.

Want to be part of something way bigger than you? We can’t do this on our own…we need you!

A more diverse and inclusive tech sector provides social, economic and innovation value, and yet, despite best intentions there’s still a lot of work that needs to be done to diversify our sector so that it reflects the beautiful diversity of our communities.

As a part of our Diversity and Inclusion Tech Project, we are partnering with True Calling in a campaign to produce a series of video vignettes about people who have found what they love to do, so that we can inspire our audience to see all the infinite possibilities in their own careers and lives. We are looking for people working in tech throughout the province of BC. We are looking for you!

If you are this person reading this now or if you know an inspiring person with an amazing story working in BC tech, please reach out to us!

We want to showcase a broad range of individuals and diversity, of every gender, indigenous people, LGBTQ/2S, newcomers to Canada, and people with disabilities. This invitation is for you. Be a part of a life changing movement!

Please consider sharing your voice and your story…

To help us build an industry where everyone is represented and innovation thrives. This is an opportunity to show by example some of the fun and rewarding career paths in tech and inspire others!
