After my son was born, I started getting involved with Girls In Tech. It’s hard to jump from being a professional and working a lot to staying home with the kids. I needed to do something. That first year when you’re at home is a huge transitional time – it is for many women I think. So I started the Girls in Tech group in Toronto.
Interesting first interview from Women & Tech. If you’re interested in the local community: OKtechgURLs “is grassroots collective of women working in and pioneering technology businesses in the Okanagan Valley.”
