WCM SheBiz Calgary – Bigger and Better in 2018!

Dear Educator

Did you know that women still make up less than 25% of employment in STEM occupations? The persistence of low female representation in these industries will bear incredible economic cost with time. It’s time to accelerate women’s participation in business and STEM fields. Register your students for our second annual WCM SheBiz Calgary happening on Tuesday October 16, 2018.

WCM SheBiz aims to help foster the next generation of women in business and STEM, and encourage them to aspire to leadership positions. It is a free, day-long interactive event for female students in grades 9 – 11 designed to provide them with unique access to business and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) leaders, topics, and exposure to the numerous and exciting career opportunities available to women in these fields.

For our second annual SheBiz Calgary, we are going bigger and better! Some of our exciting new speakers and special guests include:

  • Keynote speaker: Leslie O’Donoghue, Executive Vice President, Chief Strategy and Corporate Development Officer for Nutrien
    Winner of the 2017 Distinguished Business Leader Award, co-presented by the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business and the Calgary Chamber of Commerce, as well as a four-time winner of the WXN Top 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada, there is no doubting that Leslie is a powerful female leader! We will be sitting in awe as she gives us a glimpse into what it takes to become a business mogul.
  • Entrepreneurship speaker: Hayley McKenzie, Founder of Unwrapped Life
    Hayley believes that an earth-friendly, low-waste and plastic-free lifestyle can be just as self-indulgent as any other and she founded the company that proves it. Calgary-based company Unwrapped Life has successfully reduced single-use plastics and waste in people’s self-care routines by bringing together luxury and sustainability. With her advice, we too have hopes of becoming successful female entrepreneurs.
  • Humanoid robot Pepper, ATB
    Pepper the robot is helping ATB to enhance the customer experience by interacting with people in branches, providing product recommendations, educating customers, or even just posing for selfies. Check out Pepper here.
