WRDC’s Educational Resource Centre (ERC) offers a series of practical, hands-on career exploration programs, creating awareness of the exciting opportunities in trades and STEM, and empowering girls with the information and self-confidence needed to pursue these careers. Ensuring that girls have the knowledge and resources needed to pursue any educational or career path they wish is critical. All STEM for GIRLS programs engage girls in hands-on interactive learning activities, provide opportunities to hear from real female role models, and instill the confidence required to make informed career choices.
Providing women with exposure to different career possibilities, helping them enroll and succeed in training programs, as well as assisting in job search and career advancement activities are essential to increasing women’s participation in trades and technology.
A diverse workforce offers extensive benefits for all organizations. WRDC works closely with operators, contractors, and other employers to review and assess their organizational diversity policies and practices, and provide individualized recommendations and customized tools and supports to enhance their efforts.
