On Nov. 30, Western students participated in an event at Shopify Toronto Headquarters to explore STEM and careers. The goal of the event was to gain an understanding of career and leadership opportunities in STEM, see what an inclusive and diverse workforce looked like and have meaningful discussion with Canadian women leaders currently working in STEM. Students got a feel of what it felt like working at an entrepreneurial-focused company, talk with graphic/front-end/back-end designers and developers and enjoyed a free lunch catered by Shopify! It was a day full of engagement and inspiration for all. Thanks to Shopify and Quantius Education Foundation for organizing and hosting us!
