Join us at JJ Bean on Alberni for a night of networking, chit-chat, and strategy sharing between women in male-dominated industries.
Here's the plan: 1) Meet at JJ Bean on Alberni. 2) Order delicious cappuccinos, chamomile tea, double chocolate vegan cookies, etc. 3) Meet some cool women and chat about our work lives. 4) Exchange cards, phone numbers, facepages, myfriend accounts, tweetster, instapics, snaptexts, or whatever it is that the kids are using these days to stay in touch. 5) Stay in touch! Or....failing that, we'll do it all again in four weeks, so don't worry, we've got your back.
Hope to see you there!

Attendance Notes: 1) Gender: All WIMDI Cafe Nights are restricted to those who do not currently identify as cisgender men. These events have limited attendance and often involve personal discussion, debate, and advice specific to dynamics underrepresented minorities in these industries experience. We are happy for cisgendered men to learn and participate in WIMDI conversation at most of our other events, but we reserve the Cafe Nights as a space for women* to connect with each other freely and openly.
2) Children: WIMDI events are for parents too! We know childcare can occasionally be a challenge, but we don't think that should stop you from connecting and learning with us. WIMDI doesn't offer childcare at our events, but we'd love you to bring your little one along with some quiet activities to occupy them. Suitable for ages 0+.
3) Code of Conduct: By attending this event, you agree to adhere to WIMDI's code of conduct, which you can find at wimdi.com/code-of-conduct.
4) Photography: This WIMDI event does not have photography.
*WIMDI uses an inclusive definition of women that means "people who are 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 our events! Feel free to reach out to the Organizer, Holly Burton, with any questions and for an automatic welcoming face and first-friend at any WIMDI event.
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.
