Innovate Inclusion is committed to providing access to programs that contribute to the growth and economic stability of underrepresented entrepreneurs.
During the research phase of our State of Diversity within Ontario Incubator report(link to page where they can get the report), we noted one constant; The reality of exclusion within institutions and the need for community support around aspiring underrepresented tech talent and entrepreneurs.
Diversity & inclusion in tech is not an issue exclusive to the workplace, it extends into incubators, festivals, conferences, and events. A large culture shift needs to generate a feeling of belonging.
Too often, underrepresented communities miss out on opportunities to connect simply because they can’t afford the price of admission. Conference Connect is an exclusive program that provides access to individuals who have a lot to gain from being in attendance. Aside from providing a free ticket to address financial barriers, we have a larger goal in mind; to form a community committed to supporting each other.
Stay up-to-date with all of our upcoming opportunities by following us on social media, signing up for our newsletter and visiting the events page. Interested in a conference that listed on our events page? Send us an email and let us know where you need a Conference Connect.
