Women Leading Change

Women Leading Change in STEM

Women have made great strides in the labour force, but there is still much to address in order to close the gender gap. The Women Leading Change series highlights powerful voices leading change across industries in which women remain underrepresented. These events aim to help raise awareness around gender inequality and support positive action through dialogue and engagement.

The next Women Leading Change event will happen in the early New Year – keep an eye on this page for upcoming event details.


Women Leading Change in STEM

The first event took place on October 13, 2021 and focused on women leading change in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Four phenomenal leaders came together to discuss their experience in making change and how we can support others along their journey.
