EHRC Bursaries for Women Entering the Electricity Industry

EHRC International Women's Day Bursaries

May 30, 2023

Year after year, the data consistently shows that men outnumber women in technology, engineering, and trades jobs in Canada’s electricity industry. As the industry evolves to meet climate change goals and ensure a clean, resilient energy future, there is a real opportunity – and need – to include more women in the sector. In 2023, and in honour of International Women’s Day, EHRC’s board of directors and staff announced the creation of two new $2,000 bursaries for women entering or currently enrolled in a trades or STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) program.

These two annual bursaries will be awarded for the first time on the 15th of September 2023. As well as providing financial support, the bursary will provide recipients with access to mentorship and networking opportunities through free access to EHRC’s two signature events, Agents of Change and Awards of Excellence.
