ABOUT OUR RESEARCH
To address these gaps and improve opportunities for 2SLGBTQ+ individuals interested in or working in tech in Canada, QueerTech teamed up with Dr. Robert-Paul Juster's research team at Université de Montréal and Dr. Ketra Schmitt's team at Concordia. Together, they are working to understand and address these issues through an extensive literature review and a mixed methods research study.

This work will help better understand hiring/employment experiences, challenges in attracting/retaining 2SLGBTQ+ individuals in tech, and how to improve these processes, program designs, service offerings, policy advice, and advocacy initiatives. It facilitates knowledge translation and the application of research to impact Canadians' lives positively.
