Our Events

We host all kinds of events from coding and CV workshops to networking events. We hold an annual LinkedIn headshot event where we take professional pictures of our members for their LinkedIn profiles. For our networking event we invite women representatives from different companies to come network with our members. We also organize industry visits where we bring our members to a company for a tour of the site.

Speed Networking

Women in Tech hosts an annual Speed Networking event for the McGill community with the participation of multiple companies such as Apple, Microsoft, Tesla, and Facebook! The event encourages both women and men from the McGill community to build a network with these representatives, learn about the various opportunities offered, and polish their professional skills. Keep an eye out for this event as the spots always fill up quickly!

Mentorship Program

What is better than getting paired with real life professionals?! Picture yourself alongside real-life professionals in your chosen industry… With the Mentorship Program, our goal is to give our community an exclusive opportunity to gain valuable experience and advice from inspiring women in the industry. From casual coffee chats to interview prep, dive into exclusive opportunities that will empower you for the future!


Whether students are curious about possibilities in research and academia, industry, or simply looking to broaden their understanding of possibilities for women in tech, WIT hosts numerous speaker panels throughout the year with McGill faculty professors, industry professionals, and upper year students, to tackle issues such as breaking barriers in tech, tips and tricks for university students, and stepping into the industry as a fresh grad!


Everything we do here at WIT aims to help our community become the best version of themselves. The best way to put that into action is by giving you the stage: Workshops! Every year we curate a series of engaging sessions, creating a welcoming environment for everyone eager to learn. They are generally career based ones such as “How To Ace An Interview”, where we invite industry professionals to give some life-saving tips on securing those internships!

LinkedIn Headshots

The annual WIT LinkedIn Headshots event allows students to receive professional LinkedIn headshots for free! This event facilitates students of all faculties with no cost, to ensure accessibility to the student body. We strive to provide McGill students with elevated LinkedIn pictures, just as the fall semester is kicking into full swing!

Industry Tours

Women in Tech offers different company tours and site visits each year. This activity gives an insight to our members about the work environment in the tech industry. It is also a unique chance to have an inside look at the company—from the shop floor to the corporate head offices. The tours shed light on the different paths that can be taken to achieve career goals as well as hopes to inspire and motivate students to work hard and dream big.
