The Johnson Shoyama Centre for the Study of Science and Innovation Policy is pleased to host the inaugural Women in Science Speaker Series, featuring the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Sport, on Monday, January 14, 2019.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) related disciplines and professions are core to innovation-driven economies and growth. Nevertheless, persistent gender inequalities and biases in training, hiring and promotion processes have limited the benefits of STEM sectors for social prosperity and personal well-being. These factors combined with other social barriers have intensified effects for certain groups of women including Indigenous women, women with disabilities, and those of visible minority communities.
This speaker series showcases leading female scientists in the STEM sectors and recognizes their contributions to policy development, national dialogue, economic growth and prosperity.
