Ada’s Team is excited to announce that in partnership with the Computing Science Department we will be sending a delegation of students to the Canadian Celebration of Women in Computing (CAN-CWiC).
On January 22, 2016 our delegation will arrive Ottawa along with hundreds of women in tech from all across Canada.
“CAN-CWiC 2016 will unite technical women from across Canada for networking, mentoring and planning for Canada’s technical future. The conference will inspire women at all points in their careers – from first year students to senior technical women with years of industrial experience. The career fair will provide an excellent opportunity for companies to recruit technical talent from across Canada.” – CAN-CWiC
