With private and public funding, WRDC offers a variety of programs and services to address the challenges surrounding the attraction, recruitment, retention and advancement of women in these sectors.
Successfully increasing the participation of women in these fields requires a comprehensive “lifecycle” approach, supporting women at all points in the career cycle. Our charitable arm, the Educational Resource Centre (ERC), was created in 2002, to provide hands-on learning and career exploration opportunities for younger women and girls in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) as well as skilled trades.
