DMZ and Out On Bay Street hosting Launching into Inclusion event June 21

The DMZ and Out On Bay Street, a professional organization fostering the development of LGBTQIA+ students transitioning into their careers, are Launching into Inclusion on June 21 in Toronto.

The event will examine the intersections of self identification and LGBTQA inclusion as it pertains to entrepreneurship. The speaker list includes Chakameh Shafii, co-founder and CEO of TranQool; Lidia Bit-Yunan, co-founder at Set Scouter; Zee Adams, co-founder and creative director of Somanda and founder of Thinq I/O; and Scott Stirrett, founder and executive director of Venture for Canada.

Moderated by Ziversity founder Stefan Palios, the panelists will touch on the need for diverse perspectives at all stages of a company’s employee team — from founders to early employees — as well as their lived experiences.

Free tickets are available on the official Eventbrite page.
