There are so many amazing groups for women in tech in Vancouver. It's about time we all got together for some fun! This event is a partnership between some of Vancouver's best Women in Tech groups in the city:
- Women in Male-Dominated Industries - Women in Tech World - Women in Product - WWEST - Women in Games - Gather YVR - Women in Communications & Technology BC - Women in Tech Regatta
Come on out for a fun night of networking, drinks, and snacks where you can meet other women in similar fields, make professional connections, and find some new friends who get where you're coming from.
The event will run from 6:00 - 8:00 pm -- feel free to show up anytime your work or play is done for the day.
The Organizers of Women in Male-Dominated Industries, The Women in Tech Regatta, Women in Tech World, Women in Product, & Westcoast Women in Engineering, Science and Technology, Women in Games, Gather YVR, and Women in Communications & Technology BC.

On a scale of 1-10, how fun will this event be? It'll be easily 25 out of 10 on the fun scale.
Who is welcome at this event? This event is open to people who identify as women as well as any individual who is in a gender minority in their field. This includes trans individuals, genderqueer, agender, intersex, two spirit, and non-binary folks. If you are not sure if you are included, please err on the side of attending this event! Feel free to reach out to the Organizer, Holly Burton, with any questions and for an automatic welcoming face and first-friend.
Do I have to bring my ticket to the event? Nope, as long as you know your name and it matches the one on our list, you'll be good to go.
If I can't make it anymore, what do I do? Unfortunately we don't have the bandwidth to process refunds, but you're free to give or sell your ticket to another lovely human who would like to attend. Just make sure to forward them your e-ticket, so we can scan it (since your name will be on the list, rather than theirs).
Will there be alcohol at this event? Yes. We will also have lots of soft drinks and non-alcoholic options.
What's the best way to get to the party? The #2, #4, #7, #10 and #50 bus all have stops within a short walk to Central1. If you're driving, there is parking nearby in this location.
Do y'all have a code of conduct and/or harassment policy? Heck yes! We want all of our attendees to feel safe so we're dedicated to a harassment-free experience for everyone at our events. By attending this event, you agree to adhere to WIMDI's code of conduct, which you can find at wimdi.com/code-of-conduct.
Will there be photography at this event? There will be photography at this event. By attending you consent to the terms laid out at wimdi.com/photography-release. We understand that photography may present a safety and/or privacy concern to some attendees. Due to the large attendee volume at this particular event and unstructured seating, we will be unable to accommodate specific requests to not be photographed. WIMDI and several of the other meetups collaborating on this event offer many other photography-free events, as well as more structured events where we can manage attendee requests for no photos. If photos at this event aren't a great fit for you, then we'd love to see your smiling face (or heck, even your grumpy face!) at one of our other events where we can collaborate with you on photography.
This is a networking group for women in male-dominated industries (eg: mining, finance, tech, engineering, construction, politics, etc.). We meet once a month for coffee/tea to chat, comiserate, strategize, and cheer each other on. It's a great way to connect with women facing your issues when they are few and far between in your work life.
