STEM And The Future Of Work
STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education has become increasingly important in today’s world. The skills and knowledge gained in STEM fields are in high demand and can lead to successful and rewarding careers. However, Indigenous peoples face more significant barriers to accessing these opportunities than other Canadians.
Access to quality education, particularly in STEM fields, has been limited due to a lack of resources and funding for Indigenous schools and post-secondary institutions. Furthermore, there are cultural and linguistic barriers that Indigenous communities face in accessing and engaging in STEM education.
Join us as industry professionals explore the importance of building culturally-responsive relationships with Indigenous communities, whereby they are provided with the resources and support they need to develop their own STEM initiatives
