Last fall, Canadian commerce company Shopify held an event called Beyond the Code in Canada's capital city of Ottawa to celebrate women in the realm of technology. The conference was crafted to bring together women with shared interests and skills, serving as a place to foster meaningful connections and learning experiences through panels, workshops and speaking events. Some of the speakers featured at the event included leading female product designers from Buzzfeed, operations engineers, project managers and MBA Candidates from the Harvard Business School.

Since the numbers of men working in technology heavily outnumber women, this was a clever move on behalf of Shopify to lift up women, especially since the future will bring even more business opportunity in tech industries.
