Canadian STEM Femmes

Read on to meet Canadian STEM Femmes: women working in science, technology, engineering and math. Hear their stories, find out about their career paths, struggles and successes and check out their advice. Most importantly, share their stories! The women contributing to this blog hope that their stories will provide inspiration to young girls interested in science, give strength to women who feel like outsiders in their field, and help us all celebrate women in STEM.
