(Apologies for this post being a bit late. The TEDxToronto talks were uploaded sometime in November).
In case you did not get a chance to attend TEDxToronto, or view the videos online after, we wanted to share a talk that is sure to leave you speechless. It was given by Dr. Brian Goldman, a highly regarded emergency physician at Mount Sinai in Toronto. His talk is about doctor’s making mistakes.
In the high-tech industry, mistakes and startup failures are regarded as a sign of gutsiness, perseverance, and hands-on learning. And while the high-tech industry is in no way dealing with a precious human life, it is one of the few (if not the only) industries where it is OK to mess up.
Not surprisingly, it is not OK to mess up in medicine. Unfortunately, mistakes do happen by doctors as well…

The Techwomen Canada program aims to connect and support Canadian women in the Information and Communications Technology sector to their peers in Silicon Valley. This outreach initiative will expose Canadian women to the high growth and impact culture of the Valley which they can use to enhance their technology businesses and careers. This five day program will take place in Silicon Valley the week from May 21st to May 25th. Participants will be responsible for their travel and accommodation costs.
The Canadian women will be paired with mentors at leading companies in Silicon Valley and gain training and skills in their specific area of expertise as well as professional guidance and support. The mentorship will continue online for a period of up to three months. As a complement to the mentorships, the program will include components such as “Tech Talk” in the form of entrepreneurship panels and professional workshops. The participants will also connect with local industry stakeholders through networking events such as the Welcome reception, and the Tech Women Canada concluding reception with a keynote by a Valley luminary.
To be considered for the program, please apply here.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis up to April 13, 2012.
