About the Event
The Lethbridge Diversity and Inclusion Alliance presents a panel on Girls in Information and Communication Technologies. This year's theme is Access and Safety.
Gender equity, access and safety will be discussed from the perspective of those with lived experience. We will also highlight a local program that encourages girls to get into non-traditional careers of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).
We have invited three speakers:
- Kristen Many Bears, Corporate Performance, City of Lethbridge
- Steph Elder, Destination Exploration, University of Lethbridge
- One to be announced
Kristen will speak about her experience getting into and working in the ICT world as a woman - barriers and challenges she face(d) and what could have helped her.
Steph will speak about the Destination Exploration Program at the University of Lethbridge on InnovateHER Club (Gr 4 - 7). This club gives females a safe and encouraging space to explore the amazing world of STEM !
Everyone is welcome to attend. Registration is FREE.
