Description

Our guest, Sydney Coleman, works on diversity, equity, and inclusion programs at Google in San Francisco. She also serves as the VP on a Board for US National Committee for UN Women San Francisco. Sydney is incredibly passionate about making the workplace, and tech industry in particular, more accessible, inclusive, and equitable for underrepresented populations.

Within Alberta, female participation in the technology sector is over twice the national average and 30 per cent of tech companies in the province have a female founder or co-founder, according to a recent study by Alberta Enterprise Corporation (AEC) (Globe and Mail, June 2019).
