Empowering Young Females to Pursue 

Careers in Agriculture and STEM!

Women make up less than 25% of people employed in STEM careers. According to Statistics Canada, 34% of Canadians with a STEM degree are women and they make up only 23% of Canadians working in science and technology. The gender gaps are particularly high in some of the fastest-growing and highest-paid jobs of the future, like computer science and engineering.

Giving young women equal opportunities to pursue — and thrive in — STEM careers in agriculture helps narrow the gender pay gap, enhances economic security, ensures a diverse and talented workforce and a strong and sustainable agriculture industry.

Ag for Life's Feed Your Future initiative aims to promote girls in science, technology, engineering, and math — showcasing ways to advance in education, opportunities for networking, professional development, mentorship and collaboration.
