Since 2004, WCM has invited high schools in the Greater Toronto Area to nominate two female grade 12 students with an interest in business to spend a day on Bay Street. Offered in Toronto and Montreal, WCM's Job Shadow Day is a free, day-long event that gives students a first-hand view of the exciting careers in finance and capital markets. The day includes interactive workshops and presentations profiling women with diverse careers in finance, and an afternoon job shadow experience with a mentor at one of our sponsor firms.

Over its 16-year lifespan, 2,000 female high school students have participated in WCM's Job Shadow Day, many of whom have continued on to pursue careers in capital markets.
