Broken cultures and lack of diversity and inclusivity are catching up with some of the biggest names in tech. In 2017, we’ve seen recognizable names enter the hall of shame. Let’s talk about defining, building, and maintaining a healthy culture. A culture that is diverse, that is inclusive and reflective of what a company should look like in 2017. Canada can be a global leader through culture.
Join us Nov 29 – 30 at SAAS NORTH.
