Join the Toronto chapter of Young Women in Business on Thursday, September 13th for a STEM Q&A Panel, focused on the theme 'Forge Ahead'. YWiB Toronto will highlight the different tactics and strategies that help women interested in STEM to not only enter, but stay and thrive in their fields. We recognize that women across the board struggle with similar workplace issues, thus striving to produce a dialogue that will be pertinent to attendees in all industries.
We seek to empower current and emerging STEM leaders to become agents of change for the future generations of women. Strongly grounded in the realities of the opportunities and challenges faced by professionals in the STEM industries, YWiB will help empower the existing and emerging generations of women, and teach them the tools they need to forge ahead in their respective fields.
Women—and their supporters— are invited to attend this Q&A panel to hear from four key speakers (one from each discipline: Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) and an accomplished moderator. Topics of discussion will include their career paths, the role a supportive network of peers has played in their career development, and the bold steps they have taken to overcome obstacles.
YWiB believes every woman and young professional, whether stepping into the workforce, growing in their career, or established, should be well-equipped with the proper set of tools and knowledge to reach their fullest personal and professional potential.
This event will also serve to connect aspiring attendees with role models, with the goal of nourishing relationships and fostering a supportive STEM community. Attendees will gain the opportunity to expand their leadership skill set by engaging in an interactive session created by leaders themselves and leave with tangible skills and knowledge to bring back into the workplace.
