She's helping coordinate us speakers for this month's ResolveTO (put on by Rebecca Croll, Jan 25-27): www.resolveto.com/

Jodi EchakowitzGreat timing for your post. Danielle and I connected later this afternoon and we're going to meet in a few weeks. Of course, if I was in town next week I would be at Resolve. Sounds like it should be a great event.

Mohammed AsaduallahIs the speaker list final? About a third may identify as women, but not even a quarter would identify as PoC. Sucks to see another year starting off with such poor representation of women and PoC at tech events in Toronto.

Just need to throw out a shout out to the SN community. This is a medium that I recommend to EVERYONE in the tech/startup world to get a sense for unabashed, real-time, relevant ideas, opportunities and content. This is a collective of the smartest in class; somewhere I've had the pleasure of observing (and to be honest, getting to know) some of the most forward-thinking folks in the community. Even folks I've never met personally - I know all about their strengths, successes, setbacks, and how they've stepped up to help others when they've needed something. And that's a privilege. In this group, you very quickly realize who the key players are, and how hard they're working to raise the tide for everyone to do better. No BS, just things that are helpful (well, likely thanks in part to David Crow's delete/ban button and paddlings). We essentially have a front row seat inside the minds of our fellow tech/startup leaders, and I encourage everyone to listen closely, and reach out when you see a great opportunity for someone in this group. I can confidently say that I recommend people on a daily basis, based on what I've heard them say or seen them share in this group. If there's one ask I have, it's to keep sharing, debating, high-fiving, and giving back. People are watching and learning. Final nod to John Philip Green who inspired this post after an impromptu coffee this afternoon (after a year of observation/shout-outs/admiration of his great contributions across the board). Communities at work are unstoppable - thanks for being best in class. ... See MoreSee Less

Hi everyone! I have a lead on a great grant program that will cover up to 70% of the cost of HackerYou courses if you'd like to send your employees.

We have part-time evening courses starting soon on SEO, UX, WordPress and of course, web development (HTML & CSS). We also run our web development courses on Saturdays, since it tends to be easier for employees with families or who commute. More details at hackeryou.com.

Let me know if you'd like me to put you in touch with our contact!
