Breaking Down Barriers: Unleashing the Power of Inclusion for Women in STEM

Event Description

Join us at the hEr VOLUTION 2nd Annual Canadian Women in STEM Conference as we break down barriers and unleash the power of inclusion. This year, you’ll hear from an elite line up of Keynotes, Panels and, as requested by you, Breakout Sessions that address these important topics and foster discussions relating to barriers, lack of diversity, and inclusion for women and minorities in STEM.

Since our founding in 2013, we have developed numerous programs and seminars for young women in STEM fields. Yet, 5 years later, we still hear young women tell us “we are not being seen or heard in STEM”. This must change. And together we have the power to do so. Building on the success of our inaugural conference in 2017, we bring you topics of discussion that speak for themselves and are based on YOUR feedback. These include:

* Innovation in Technology
* LGBTQA+ in STEM
* Financial Literacy
* STEM Communication
* Speed Networking

Best of all, we will include men in the conversation as well!

All proceeds from this conference are going to hEr VOLUTION’s programming for underserved youth.

What will attendees learn?

Last year our conference was SOLD OUT and at capacity. This year we expect over 150 to attend and we invite you to get your ticket today and be part of hErstory!

You won’t want to miss the opportunity to join the discussion and to network with high-profile industry leaders and peers all in one place. Not only will you be inspired, but you will walk away with the necessary strategies and support to take you to the next level in your career. Whether you are a student or a STEM veteran, our goal is to give you straightforward tools on how to navigate the industry while building the critical confidence needed to place you in the lead.

As it is our mission to create opportunities for the next generation of women in STEM, we welcome students to attend and we invite you to sponsor a student at the conference. Last year, we had a 48% student attendance and this contributed to the discussion that was raw, honest and open. We strive to make it a better experience and we need your help to make it possible.

We hope you’ll join us at this must-attend event. Speakers will be announced soon!
