Join Women in Aerospace Canada Atlantic (WIA-Canada.org) and Women in Science and Engineering – Atlantic (WISEatlantic.ca) as they celebrate #IWD2020 with a special screening of Pioneers in Skirts– a 60-min movie about ambition and the ongoing effort to achieve gender parity in the workforce.
This film, directed by Ashley Maria, is a social impact documentary about the erosion of women’s career ambitions and what can be done about it to ensure ambitious girls and women can pursue their careers without having to combat bias in their lives and where companies will achieve diverse and inclusive work cultures.

THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
- You don’t need to be a member of WIA-Canada or WISEatlantic to join them for the screening of Pioneers in Skirts.
- They encourage students, educators, parents, working women and men because we all play a part in closing the gender gap and addressing the stereotyping and sexism that can chip away at a woman, hurt her potential, and make her feel like she must rethink her dreams.
