Campagne de sensibilisation – Femmes et STIM


The team from the Chair for Women in Science and Engineering in Quebec wants to educate girls and their families to careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). To this end, we have planned an awareness campaign via social networks.

This campaign will take place on 10 November. You are invited to take part in the event via your social networks. Indeed, throughout the day, students and women in STEM are encouraged to publish a picture of her, alone or in groups, holding a sheet explaining why she changes the world as a part of their duties with the word #STIM for a Better World.

UPCOMING WEBINAR- Young Professionals in collaboration with IEEE Women in Engineering:

“Why Engineering Matters for Women”
Date: 31 July 2014 
Time: 2:30 PM Eastern Time
There is an outdated belief that girls are not as good at science and math subjects as boys, but according to the report Generation STEM, high school girls earn more math and science credits than boys do, and their GPAs, aggregated across math and science classes, are higher than boys. Still, these stereotypes can hold girls back and question their abilities. Our webinar speaker, Monique Morrow, CTO of Cisco Services focuses on developing strategic technology and business architectures for Cisco customers and partners, and will show you why a career in engineering is an excellent opportunity!
