Bringing together industry leaders, scientists and innovators, to motivate young girls in pursuing further education in STEM

QEF hosts a regular speakers panel of women industry leaders, scientists and innovators at local high schools, building awareness and excitement around diversity in STEEM-based career options. With the support of Western Technical Commercial School (TDSB) and OYAP (Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program), this interactive forum brings together prominent female industry leaders in STEM with secondary-school youths to showcase real-life stories of overcoming challenges in the traditionally male-dominated STEEM industry, and promotes careers in STEEM among youths who are female, new Canadians, and visible minorities.
