Description

What is this?

On Nov 2nd, come join us for an awesome night of wine, snacks, and speakers. This is a fully sponsored event with all proceeds from ticket sales and prize draws going to the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre.

We'll be hearing from two speakers: Liza McDowell from the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre and from Stacey Bujnowicz from Slack!

This is an awesome way to get out and meet other women who work in tech in Vancouver (non-technical roles included!) without the pressure of networking, all while doing some good for our larger Vancouver community.

Doors will open at 6:00pm, talks will start at 6:30pm and wrap up around 7:30pm. Stick around after for some great discussion and refreshments until 9:00pm!

Our first speaker will be Liza McDowell from the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre. Liza has been with the DTWC for over 15 years and works as a Mental Health Advocate. She'll be sharing about how DTWC impacts women in the community, her specific role, and the services they provide. This will be followed by a talk from Stacey Bujnowicz. Stacey works at Slack as a Global Facilities Project Manager and will be speaking about her unconvential journey into the tech world.

There will also be a raffle to raise more money for DTWC along with some great door prizes! We'll have more ways to donate directly to DTWC online and at the event, coming soon!

How else can I contribute?

We set up a Chimp page to collect extra donations for the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre. For those attending the event, each donation will get you an entry into a prize draw at the event!

Or, unable to attend but still want to contribute? Your donations are much appreciated!
