QueerTech’s second annual QT Qonference (QTQ) takes place from November 1st and 2nd in downtown Montreal at Cirque Eloize & Hyatt Centric Ville-Marie.
The two-day interactive (and hybrid) event is designed for entrepreneurs and business professionals in the tech industry who identify as part of, or allies to, the 2SLGBTQ+ community.
Whether attending virtually or in person, QTQ welcomes entrepreneurs, professionals and wider ecosystem players from across the country to experience a unique program built on thoughtful learning, genuine connection, and unfiltered celebration.
The 2023 agenda was consciously developed to ensure three community groups, in particular, have access to applicable, highly tailored programming: those looking to access tech (students and professionals transitioning to tech), emerging leaders (professionals with 2-3 years of experience looking to advance their careers), and tech-based entrepreneurs (ideation to seed funding stage).
“QT Qonference provides a space for 2SLGBTQ+ people in the tech industry to connect, learn, and feel a sense of belonging,” said Naoufel Testaouni, CEO of QueerTech.
“This is also an important opportunity for our community to feel empowered so they can bring their authentic selves to work each and every day.”
Throughout the multi-day event, attendees of QTQ will have access to a series of facilitated workshops, inspirational keynotes, technical talks, and informative panels from leading industry experts.
Additionally, attendees will have access to peer groups and networking sessions, fostering meaningful connections with others in the community.
