It was recently announced that Carleton University will be partnering with Trend Micro to launch the Women in Engineering and Information Technology (WiE&IT) program.
Indeed, this program will aim to support women who are pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Women students will then be able to learn from leading tech professionals as well as make connections and set their career paths. Women undergraduate and graduate students studying a STEM subject are invited to be a part of the WiE&IT program.
By doing so, the University and the company are trying to bridge the gap between graduates and the workforce. This collaboration also aims to increase the number of women working in the Canadian STEM workforce.
The program will feature industry talks, industry networking sessions, and conversations between students and professionals.
