Event Details

Mentors and role models are often critical to a woman’s decision to enter the technology sector. A mentor's input and guidance can help build the necessary skills and confidence a young woman needs to advance in her career. One international study found that 80% of successful women had been mentored throughout their careers, usually by more than one person.

Why the need for mentors?

Canadian women represent almost half of the overall Canadian workforce, yet

  • They make up only 25% of the Canadian advanced technology workforce 
  • An even smaller percentage of women in the tech sector are managers
  • 52% of highly qualified females working in science, engineering and technology companies will quit their jobs within the first 10 years of their career
Join CanWIT's Waterloo Chapter and learn more about the benefits of mentoring for women in tech!
 
Share. Guide. Inspire.
