"I was in a lonely place after getting laid off. I had been extremely dissatisfied with my prior job, and I knew I wanted to make a change.While I had no idea where I wanted to go, discovering the CITI community helped me connect with people in the same boat that I was. While I was still discovering my own journey, I was no longer walking alone. I was able to meet and learn from others who were also hungry to grow their careers."

“I really enjoy being part of the CITI community. CITI's programming gives me the opportunity to meet inspiring people, grow my network, refine my pitch and gave me access to valuable resources. I really enjoy paying it forward, helping others on their journey, and getting to know people in the community."

“CITI was so welcoming! I was surrounded by like-minded people and felt connected. Entrepreneurship can be lonely; it was helpful to hear others go through unfamiliar situations and how they faced big challenges, plus… I learned a lot about networking. CITI was a safe community to build my confidence, navigate imposter syndrome and grow your career!"

Ryan Sekulic

“I have been a member since the early days of CITI, and have found it a constructive and supportive place to meet with other members of the community. CITI provides an opportunity to build skills both as a mentor when you help others, but also in new areas as members of the community are always seeking to give back and share their experiences. I am very happy to be a member of the community, and look forward to more constructive and positive interactions.”

“CITI is a great addition to my tech career. It was a social support and community. The best part was the consistency and regularity of the meetings including the panels and specifically the breakout rooms at the weekly meetings. Connecting with regulars made it easy to ask questions, was affirming, an opportunity to build confidence, learn from each other and stay informed about what’s happening in tech. CITI became, in a sense, an extended chosen family and community."

Mai Khalil

Product Manager | Deloitte

"CITI is not only a strong community for those growing their tech careers but also a cornerstone for meaningful connections and a sense of belonging that I personally needed as a newcomer."

“The resources, generosity and support at CITI are the foundation of my success in tech. I joined CITI to grow my tech career but it is the community aspect that keeps me returning each week! Looking for where to start? Try Random Coffee or Breakout Rooms at Wednesday night events. These were my favourite networking activities, when I first started, as everyone involved is interested in taking time to have a conversation."

Kat Connolly

Software Developer | Checkfront

“I've been a part of a lot of tech organizations over the years and CITI has become my go-to. Everyone in the group has grown their tech careers so there is a shared experience and knowledge base that you won't find anywhere else."

Regan Setter

Product Manager

"CITI is a community-focused platform for professionals to learn and connect with like-minded people. I moved from Saskatchewan to Calgary in 2022 and quickly built many meaningful connections in my industry because of the CITI platform. I've been able to help others during their career growth while simultaneously receiving help. The members of CITI want to see you succeed and go above and beyond to provide you with the help you need to have a fulfilling, meaningful career in Tech. Thanks CITI!"
