Potenti’Elle en Science - an HBA celebration of International Day of Women & Girls in Science

During this event, HBA members and non-members will be able to sign up to this event and “bring along” (virtually) a young person to meet inspiring women working in science. These youngsters will gain insight into what it’s really like having a career in science, they will be able to unravel their curiosity by questioning a diverse set of speakers, and even establish connections with the potential for a future shadow experience or informational interview. By presenting a number of role models, these youngsters will see themselves represented in the science industry and learn from their journeys. What’s more, the event will be held in French (local language) to promote social mobility and improve outreach. As part of the event, attendees will also learn how HBA promotes equality for women in science and healthcare. Attendees will also benefit with networking opportunities with women working in science.

En français
Nous vous invitons à rejoindre cet événement pour célébrer la Journée Internationale des Femmes et les Filles en Sciences. Pendant cet événement virtuel, chaque participant/e peut amener un/e jeune accompagnant/e pour rencontrer des femmes passionnantes qui travaillent dans des métiers scientifiques.

Les participants apprendront comment se crée une carrière en sciences. Ils pourront aiguiser leur curiosité en posant des questions aux diverses oratrices et auront même l'occasion d'établir des relations pour d'éventuelles rencontres.

Le but de cet événement est de mettre en avant la représentation et la visibilité des femmes dans les domaines scientifiques et réduire les obstacles que les femmes peuvent rencontrer dans l'industrie des sciences. Nous voulons montrer aux jeunes (et moins jeunes) qu'une carrière en sciences est très dynamique et diversifiée. De plus, l'événement sera en français pour promouvoir les métiers dans les sciences et atteindre la population locale.
