Celebrate International Day of Women and Girls in Science with us!
For International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we are celebrating the amazing women, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming trailblazers who are #BreakingBarriersInSTEM.
Did you know that in Canada, women make up only 23% of science and technology workers and 7% of trades workers? Yet science, technology, trades, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) occupations are among the highest-paid and fastest-growing occupations in the country. Research has shown that breaking stereotypes, providing diverse role models, and access to mentorship programs can all help.
On February 11, let’s highlight the amazing people who are breaking barriers!
There are two ways to participate:
1 – JOIN THE CAMPAIGN!
Our Off Limits role models are breaking barriers and so are you!
On February 11, show the world how YOU are #BreakingBarriersInSTEM.
1. Watch one of our Off Limits videos for inspiration
2. Share a picture of YOURSELF in a STEM location showing how you are #BreakingBarriersInSTEM
3. Tag us @GirlsInScience and use the hashtag #BreakingBarriersInSTEM
2 – JOIN THE EVENT!
Join us on February 11 at 4 pm ET for an inspiring virtual panel! This FREE panel will have a Q&A format and will be open to children, teens, and adults.
