Hearing from inspiring and interesting women along with the networking and learning opportunities [are] my favorite part of Shebiz.

In2Fin 2021 Info Package
Showcasing pathways to careers in STEM & finance
Join us on November 24, 2021!
This year WCM is rebranding our popular SheBiz event to In2Fin! The event will remain free for high school students. In2Fin will showcase ways a career in the Financial Services industry can be rewarding and impactful while still offering high school students the opportunity to learn more about future careers in STEM.
This year’s event will be delivered virtually to ensure access to students across the country. Since its inception in 2012, WCM’s premier event for a high school audience has reached 7000+ students and has been hosted in Toronto, Calgary, Montreal, Vancouver and Victoria. Our 2020 virtual event welcomed over 1400 high school students and teacher registrants from across the country.
The information I received during the SheBiz 2020 conference was so helpful in terms of my future. I've learned so much advice in regards to high school students and what courses and opportunities I should take or look out for. I've learnt how to navigate my interests in business and leverage those skills. I've learnt about the different opportunities and sources a university student can look out for to help guide their careers as well.

I attended Women in Capital Market’s Shebiz conference back in 2015, without expectations of the impact WCM would have on my learning and development in the long-term. Fast forward to Shebiz 2019 this past November, I had the opportunity to share my story as a panelist. Shebiz 2015 gave me early exposure to career opportunities in Capital Markets and access to students and professionals engaged in the organization. WCM has made significant progress to promote D&I through their initiatives to educate students through their High School Liason, Shebiz, and Uniconnect programs (all programs which I’ve had the pleasure to participate in). Thanks to WCM and the driven, generous professionals I’ve had the pleasure to engage with and be mentored by, I’ve had nothing but support since high school and was able to kick-start my career in Capital Markets! In 2020, I hope to continue paying it forward and inspire students to pursue a career in Capital Markets, just like how I was inspired at Shebiz 2015!
WCM SheBiz Participant
After attending the eye-opening event I gained a particular interest when the keynote speaker was talking about accounting, more specifically, becoming a CPA. Ever since I attended I made it my goal to become just that. Currently I am accepted into the Accounting and Finance program at the Ted Roger’s School of Management at Ryerson University. Before attending SheBiz I was never exposed to the world of business. I had always assumed that business meant being a man in a suit, and women did not meet that criteria. I believed in this ideology because it was all I was ever told. Being a CPA is my dream and achieving it would not have been possible without getting a kick start from WCM.
