Queer in Tech DE&I: Inclusive workplace for the 2SLGBTQIA+ Community

September 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

We are thrilled to be hosting another DE&I Special Event! This webinar is focused on creating an inclusive workplace for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and will be led by Eunice Kajoba and Sara Martin.

Topics will include the difference between gender and orientation, allyship, understanding intersectionality, and more. Not only is this a fantastic opportunity to learn from experts in the space, but also those with real lived experiences.

Sara Martin is a settler on stolen ancestral and traditional territories of  the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.
