The conference “Propelling Women into STEM and Skilled and Non-Traditional Professions,” was the Quebec portion of a series of virtual panels held across Canada as part of The Prosperity Project’s (TPP) Rosie the Riveter Initiative. The panels, which focus on women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), skilled and non-traditional trades, and leadership roles, were held with the support of the Women Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub (WEKH).

Moderated by Kerlande Mibel, this event brought together experts from the academic and business communities. This first conference by The Prosperity Project’s Quebec team identified guiding principles, courses of action, priorities, and results-based strategies to address barriers to women in STEM fields and non-traditional occupations (Mibel, 2021, June 10). This text was written by the WEKH team based on the panellists’ comments during the webinar.
