150 Days of Canadian Women in STEM: Week 2

Momentum is building as the second week of 150 Days of Canadian Women in STEM wraps up!

We appreciate the support and feedback so far and we are excited to continue sharing these inspiring stories of inspiring women.

For Black History Month, this week, we introduced six more black women in STEM fields. Each of these women has found success with a STEM-based career, but none has stopped there. These women use their success to advocate, teach, organize, inspire, and motivate. They are true role models and their stories should continue to be shared to show girls and women, and particularly black girls and women, that opportunities are available and that they can thrive in any field they choose.

If you missed the social media posts this week, please go back and view these profiles:

  • Vareia Boxill, director of Technovation Academy of Science and Technology
  • Tia Joseph, technology professional and advocate for women in STEM
  • Aisha Addo, founder of the Power to Girls Foundation and the DriveHER app
  • Michelin Kahn, environmentalist and founder of My Little Green Foot
  • Tash Jefferies, digital and social media strategist, speaker, author, and more
  • Hyacinth Margaret, nurse, role model, and motivator

Between now and July 15, follow hEr VOLUTION’s 150 Days of Canadian Women in STEM on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter to read unique and inspiring stories of Canada’s females who are having an impact in STEM.
