On behalf of the Consulate General of Canada, you are invited to apply for an exciting pilot program, TechWomen Canada.

The Techwomen Canada program aims to connect and support Canadian women in the Information and Communications Technology sector to their peers in Silicon Valley.  This outreach initiative will expose the Canadian women to the high growth and impact culture of the Valley which they can use to enhance their technology businesses and  careers. This five day program will take place in Silicon Valley the week from May 21st to May 25th.

The Canadian women will be paired with mentors at leading companies in Silicon Valley and gain training and skills in their specific area of expertise as well as professional guidance and support.  The mentorship will continue online for a period of up to three months. As a complement to the mentorships, the program will include components such as “Tech Talk” in the form of entrepreneurship panels and professional workshops. The participants will also connect with local industry stakeholders through networking events such as the Welcome reception, and the Tech Women Canada concluding reception with a keynote by a Valley luminary.

A flyer with information on the program and the link to apply is found at TechWomen Canada Flyer May 21-25 2012 (this link to the flyer pdf is a bit slow, but it will come!).  The application process is competitive and applications are being accepted on a rolling basis, therefore, you are strongly encouraged to apply well before the deadline.  If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact:
