Science needs female mentors!

Spark is calling all women in science, technology, engineering or math professions to mentor young women on May 21, 2020.

Operation Minerva has been running for the past 31 years and stewarded for the past 25 years by the Alberta Women's Science Network. Spark is proud to be its new hub connecting young women to leading mentors in organizations with a focus on science, technology, engineering, and math careers.
