Inclusive Organizations - Executive Training 

Driving positive change and overall success through knowledge, understanding and action. 

We are inviting tech executives, who want to learn about the positive impact diversity and inclusion practices can have on their tech organization, to participate in our Inclusive Organizations - Executive Training program. You will have the opportunity to learn about the success other leaders have seen, while identifying your own personal barriers and the areas of growth that are possible for your organization.

This half-day intensive program was developed as part of TAP Network’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Tech Project to to increase the attraction, retention and advancement of women, Indigenous peoples, people with disabilities, newcomers to Canada, people of color and individuals who identify as 2SLGBTQQIA+ in B.C’s technology sector. Please review the prerequisites below to ensure eligibility.
