Abstract
This paper represents the research component of a larger project focusing on “women in technology”, an initiative launched by YES Montreal in autumn 2012. The project strives to build capacity in Montreal’s technology sector by applying a gender-based analysis in the advocacy of women’s career development in the technology sector. The research will support the delivery of programs focusing on the development, implementation and evaluation of women’s careers in technology over a 3-year period, between 2013 and 2015. The Montreal technology sector faces a pipeline issue. This report aims to improve the understanding of the factors influencing the technology sector’s lifecycle, from elements impacting early technology education through career development. Predominantly, the research addresses the issues that prevent women in Quebec’s technology sector from achieving their goals. In order to elaborate upon the issues and opportunities, the study relies on two forms of research: secondary research conducted by experts in the field, and primary data collected through surveys, focus groups and interviews.
