This Thursday Sept 22nd, Shopify is hosting their “Beyond The Code” conference in Toronto, dedicated to positive solutions for anyone interested in diversifying the technology sector. Now in its third year, the focus is community and mentorship and will feature a range of speakers from Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Slack, Dropbox, Shopify and more.
“Our goal is to build a supportive environment for underrepresented groups in tech and empower individuals to make the tech industry a more inclusive space for everyone,” states Shopify on the event website. “We know that mentorship is incredibly valuable but hard to find in the tech industry. Our tracks will cover both technical skills and career development skills to help navigate your career.”
Shopify is inviting anyone who is interested in diversity in technology to take part in sessions, workshops and hear advice from leading minds in the space.
The cost to register for is $150, or $125 for students, and is taking place at 99 Sudbury Street in Toronto on Thursday Sept 22.
