WCM SheBizWednesday, November 25th 2020
12:30 PM to 3:30 PM
Statistics Canada reports that female high school students receive better high school grades in science, technology, engineering and math than their male peers, but that females are less likely to enroll in those programs in university than their male counterparts. This is also true for BIPOC students where representation of Black STEM workers for instance is considerably lower than their representation in the Canadian population.
WCM SheBiz 2020, a free half day event showcasing careers in business and STEM for high school students, is back this fall on November 25 and for the first time, will be delivered virtually! Now entering its ninth year, WCM SheBiz continues to experience overwhelming demand. Since inception in 2012, WCM SheBiz has reached more than 6000 students and has been hosted in Toronto, Calgary, Montreal, Vancouver and Victoria. Our 2019 Shebiz Toronto sold out in one day, with 350 registrants and a waitlist of hundreds of students.
As students begin to make important decisions that will impact the direction of their education, such as course selections and applying for post-secondary studies, WCM's SheBiz aims to educate high school students about the exciting and rewarding careers in STEM and Business, and aims to inspire them to enroll in the necessary math and other courses required for post-secondary education
With WCM SheBiz going fully virtual this year, our registration process is going to look a little different than in past years.
