International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2024
To celebrate this year's International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we asked our colleagues to share with us which woman in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) inspired them to pursue their current careers at the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada.
A course on environmental impact assessments given by a remarkable professor at the University of British Columbia helped Emily realize she wanted to pursue a career in STEM. Find out how her studies eventually led her to work as a Project Analyst.
Dr. Andrea Service
Andrea's inspiration came from Rachel Carson's book: Silent Spring. Find out how a book written by a world-famous marine biologist inspired her to pursue a PhD in Forest Ecology at the University of Ulster. Her studies, in turn, led her to work as a Senior Policy Analyst.
Kiera's mentor, during a co-op term with Environment and Climate Change Canada, helped her discover the importance of female voices in the public service and in STEM. Find out how this mentor inspired her to continue a career in science and become a Junior Project Analyst.
Dr. Vivienne Wilson
Vivienne was inspired by women in STEM at a young age. Her influences include, not only, her grandmother but her two high school teachers in biology and chemistry. Vivienne now works as a Project Manager. Find out more about her lifelong love for the sciences.
Audrey is a Université de Laval in Quebec and Institut national de la recherche scientifique alumna currently working as an Environmental Assessment Officer. Find out how the women in Audrey's life ignited her passion for STEM and inspired her to follow her dreams.
