Canadian Celebration of Women in Computing West (CAN-CWiC West)

Welcome to the Virtual Watch Party for the Annual Canadian Celebration of Women in Computing!

Taking place in Toronto, we’re thrilled to extend the festivities to Simon Fraser University in Vancouver on October 25th, offering an inclusive and engaging experience for students who are unable to attend the live event in Toronto.

Join us at Simon Fraser University as we celebrate the accomplishments and contributions of women in computing, fostering a sense of community and inspiration. The virtual watch party provides an excellent opportunity for students to connect, share insights, and participate in discussions surrounding the exciting developments in the field. Don’t miss out on this unique chance to be part of a nationwide celebration right from the comfort of your campus. Mark your calendar, and let’s celebrate together in the spirit of empowerment and innovation! More information about the program will become available over the summer.
