Trend Micro Partners With Carleton University To Support Women In STEM

Trend Micro Incorporated and Carleton University have partnered to support more women pursuing careers in STEM through the Women in Engineering and Information Technology (WiE&IT) Program, launching this September. As one of the first sponsored programs of its kind in Canada, it aims to close the gender gap in STEM careers by providing women undergraduate and graduate-level students access to tools, knowledge, and resources for a successful transition into the workforce.  

As an organization that prioritizes learning and encourages employees to grow and take risks, Trend Micro proudly supports the university’s vision for the WiE&IT Program. This vision focuses on increasing awareness of women role models and providing young women with the tools and knowledge for a successful transition into the workforce.

Currently, less than twenty-five per cent of the entire Canadian STEM workforce is female. This program will create mentorship opportunities, host events for women students to build relationships with industry and government partners and provide a special fund to support allies at Carleton in meeting their equity, diversity and inclusion goals.

The program launches this school year at the beginning of September and will be virtual.
