Canadian Women in Comunication and educational partner OCAD University announce the launch of the pilot series of Strategic Digital Leadership Accelerators, for mid to senior level women working in the Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT) industries. These workshop-style accelerators are designed as skills and curriculum-based learning and networking opportunities, lead by top educational and industry experts. Each Accelerator will focus on different key topics identified by CWC research partner Digital Theory, as the most important skills and knowledge needed for innovation, growth, and success in the TMT businesses and industries.
These workshops will address digital innovation and leadership; iterative design and digital thinking; and managing convergent careers in the digital landscape. Participants will be taken through a series of inspirational collaborative hands-on learning experiences that will culminate in digital project presentations, pitches, and feedback from invited industry experts.
