WCM is excited to announce the return of Job Shadow Day Toronto in October 2023! WCM is inviting Toronto schools to send young women and gender-diverse high school students in grades 11 and 12 to spend a day downtown in the financial district and learn more about careers in finance.
Job Shadow Day is a free, day-long event, featuring interactive workshops, networking and mentoring sessions, presentations profiling women with diverse careers in finance, and an afternoon of job shadowing with a mentor who works in the industry. Job Shadow Day gives students a first-hand view of what a career in finance can look like.
Job Shadow Day has been run in Toronto since 2004 and more than 2,000 high school students have participated in this acclaimed high school event over its 19-year lifespan, many of whom have continued on to pursue careers in finance due to their experience with the event.
