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 was an initiative of the Alberta Women's Science Network for the past 31 years. 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.

As a professional, you will help young women foster a love for science, technology, engineering and math! Mentors will demonstrate through direct experience (job shadowing and hands-on workshops) to help build a network among young female students and encourage a positive environment supporting achievement in Math and Sciences. 

OUTCOMES:

    • Mentorship for grade eight female students 
    • Provide an experiential base to assist the young women in their decision-making when planing high school and post-secondary educational pathways
    • Foster positive attitudes towards courses and careers in science, technology, engineering and math areas amongst young females providing them with fun and stimulating experiences
    • Raise awareness amongst parents, educators, and the general public regarding the underrepresentation of women in science, technology, engineering and math education and careers

REQUIREMENTS:

  • $1 million employer's Liability Insurance
  • Vulnerable Sector Police Check
