Meet the Hon. Bardish Chagger, Member of Parliament for Waterloo, Leader of the Government in the House of Commons, and Canada’s Minister of Small Business and Tourism. Minister Chagger is committed to inclusion and community building. Prior to becoming MP for Waterloo, she worked at the Kitchener-Waterloo Multicultural Centre, which helps new Canadians become part of the community. She also worked with other agencies to offer an annual Global Skills Conference to help foreign-trained professionals find meaningful employment.
This video series features short messages from people who will be attending True North, Communitech’s biggest conference, which will be held for the first time in May 2018. True North will bring together influencers, policy makers, entrepreneurs, developers, scientists, and game changers for crucial conversations about the future of tech as a force for good. From the impact of artificial intelligence to issues of diversity to the spread of “fake news,” leaders and innovators have become the focus of a conversation that has the potential to reshape our values and beliefs around tech’s role in humanity.
We asked her: “Why are you going to True North?”
