Ladies of Toronto! It's that time of year again. The Toronto East/Central/West Chapters are uniting once again to provide you with a panel of strong women to talk about issues faced by Women-In-Technology. The panel will be an intimate discussion with inspiring women who have paved their way to become leaders, sharing their advice, both personal and professional, on achieving career success.

We recommend attendees come early to network prior to the discussion. Instagram and Tweet your experience using the hashtag #OACETTwomen.

We'll be closing with a Q&A session, giving you the opportunity to ask our panelists questions on leadership, empowerment, breaking stereotypes and much more. This is also a great place to network with other like-minded creatives and innovators and celebrate women leading in technology.
