Work Re-Engagement Program is a non-profit initiative hosted by AWSN and Funded by Status of Women Canada (SWC) for the duration March 2015 –March 2018. Our Mandates: • Identify the barriers that female STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) trained professionals face when they re-enter the workforce after an extended leave. • Establish leading practices for women in this demographic and the employers that want to re-engage them. • Implement a pilot project with supportive corporate partners that are motivated to incorporate these ‘leading practices’. • Create a resource hub for STEM women, employers, associations and community organizations. We are looking for dedicated and compassionate volunteers who believe in our mission to empower women in workplaces and help them better re-enter the workforce after an extended leave. On March 1, 2018 we will celebrate our efforts by setting up an event called "Speaker Series: Connecting Employers & Female STEM Professionals with Career Gaps". At this event, we will wrap up our Phase III by showcasing female professionals in STEM with gaps on their resume. There will be a panel discussion focusing on their successful projects in the past and providing opportunity to network with employers. In addition, AWSN Work Re-Engagement Program and Status of Women will recognize 5 companies that were able to implement the strategies in the guide we've developed to help them re-engage these females in their workplaces.
