In a context where women remain underrepresented in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, the Monte dans les STIM meetings are aimed at female CEGEP students currently enrolled in a program that could lead them to pursue a university degree and a career related to these sectors.

The initiative also aims to raise awareness in the business community of the impact of the underrepresentation of women in STEM and to equip professionals with the ability to drive a culture of change within their industry.


How does it work?

2023 cohorts

The program gives young women the opportunity to take part in a simple and engaging initiative to spark their interest in STEM-related fields. Central to the program are meetings with professional female role models and university students.

Event and survey

The project will culminate in a co-development event and the production of a survey to evaluate the impact of the initiative on:

  1. The participants' professional interests;
  2. Their perception of the obstacles limiting their access to non-traditional occupations;
  3. The mentors' perception of their ability to drive a culture of change within their economic sector.

Would you like to participate as a student or mentor? Or promote the program at your CEGEP?
