Did you know that only 4% of the CEOs at Fortune 500 companies are women?
The Consulate General of Canada in San Francisco and Silicon Valley is looking to change that statistic and has just announced a call for applications for their TechWomen Canada program from May 13 to 16.
This initiative will expose Canadian women in tech to the high impact culture of the Valley so as to help them accelerate the growth of their companies. Selected applicants will be paired with mentors from leading companies in Silicon Valley and will receive training and skills in their specific area of expertise, as well as professional and business development opportunities with local industry experts, investors, and strategic partners.
Mentors include senior executives from Facebook, LinkedIn, Google, HP, Cisco, IDEO, Groupon, Salesforce, Symantec, Twitter, Microsoft, and Apple. Following the four-day program in Silicon Valley, the mentorship will continue online for a period of up to two months.
If you’re a Canadian female entrepreneur, investor, or hold a senior role in technology, apply here before April 5.
