Where does Change begin

Join Digital Nova Scotia as we partner with two co-authors of the Gender Diversity Pledge for a virtual event where they will discuss why gender diversity is important, what the digital industry looks like today, why the Gender Diversity Pledge was created, and how companies can take action and begin to make meaningful changes within their organization today, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A.
