As Canada celebrates its 150th birthday, we are celebrating Canadian Women in STEM with a one-day conference on October 14 at Twenty Toronto Street Conferences and Events.
This conference is designed to bring together women and professionals in STEM for knowledge exchange and used as a learning platform to support diversity and close the gender gap for women in STEM. Beyond your typical conference, this event creates opportunities to open up dialogue and form tools and strategies for women in STEM and for the generation of women who are considering STEM as their future career.
We welcome men to attend the conference and be part of the solution with us!
We are expecting over 125 delegates and the tickets are already selling fast. Each ticket will have the opportunity to win 1 of 5 one year pro membership from Readitfor.me and a Beauty Box from Cert Clean
The speakers at this event 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.
The focus will be on diverse women in STEM using 15-minute Talks and a Panel formed of high-profile speakers and world-class researchers 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, however, everyone is welcome!
What to expect:
Do you enjoy Ted Talks? Now you have the opportunity to be a part of the first of its kind STEM Talks. High-Profile women in STEM will each take 15 minutes to talk about their experience working as a woman in STEM: How did they get started? How did they manage to stay in the field? What are they working on? What do they have to say to you, the audience, and decision makers in STEM fields as to how to include diversity and close the gender gap in STEM?
Moreover, you will be part of our interactive STEM Panel, where women in STEM fields will have a guided discussion about STEM: challenges, opportunities, and tools to help you get started in STEM fields or use them as fuel to continue to leave your mark as a leader in STEM. Furthermore, the panel will also have recommendations as to how to include diversity and close the gender gap in STEM, however, YOU will be part of that discussion as well as you will have the opportunity to ask questions and share ideas with the panel and the audience.
You get to network with high-profile leaders and peers in the industry all in one place. Not only will you be inspired but you will walk away with strategies and support taking you to the next level in your career or giving you straight forward tools on how to navigate the industry while building the critical confidence needed placing you in the lead when getting started.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to listen to prominent women in STEM or simply network with one. Who knows, you may find your mentor or this may be the opportunity to find the future leader in STEM.
