DXTalk: Doin' It For Themselves Presented by Woodcliffe Landmark Properties
234 Bay St, Toronto, ON M5K 1B2, Canada
In Canada, women represent the majority of young university graduates, but are still underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, architecture, and traditional design disciplines. Perhaps change is on the horizon – in November 2017, the Business Development Bank of Canada committed another $20 million to its Women In Tech program total a whopping $70 million investment over five years.
"The Government of Canada is committed to supporting women entrepreneurs as they work to find the support they need to start and grow their businesses," said Honourable Bardish Chagger, Minister of Small Business and Tourism, last year.
