Step into a career in agriculture and STEM.
Agriculture is a big part of Canada’s economy, accounting for one in every eight jobs and employing over 2.3 million people. However, 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.
Ag for Life's Feed Your Future initiative aims to promote careers to girls in science, technology, engineering, and math — showcasing ways to advance in education, opportunities for networking, professional development, mentorship and collaboration.
