We are pleased to invite you to pre-register for the upcoming one day conference to be held on July 15, 2017. The conference location will be at the Ontario Bar Association located at 20 Toronto St in Toronto, ON.
As Canada celebrates its 150th birthday, we took this opportunity to celebrate Canadian Women in STEM for 150 days. We started the campaign on February 14, 2017 and took each day to feature a Canadian woman in STEM. These women have paved the way to innovation and they will continue to inspire our future generation of young women who one day will be looking for female role models in STEM fields.
As a long-term strategy to closing the gender gap in STEM, this initiative was designed to bring to surface our unsung heroes, Canadian women in STEM who will in turn motivate and inspire the next generation of young women to follow their path and consider careers in STEM, it is our way to help close the gender gap in STEM in addition to learn about the diversity in STEM.
The major objective of this conference is to gather 15 Canadian Women in STEM to share their experience as a woman in STEM to over 125 conference attendees. The focus will be on diverse women in STEM and there will be STEMTalks and STEM Panels used as a key tool to inspire and motivate others to focus on gender and diversity in STEM in Canada. All speakers will share recommendations on how to close the gender gap in STEM as well as how to incorporate diversity in schools and the workplace.
The conference will be primarily open to students who are looking for opportunities in STEM and professionals in the field who are looking to support the diversity and close the gender gap for women in STEM.
