Young women in the Moncton area will have the opportunity to learn about careers and educational possibilities in the trades and technology sector thanks to support from the Government of Canada. Mr. Robert Goguen, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Justice and Member of Parliament for Moncton–Riverview–Dieppe, made the announcement today on behalf of the Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development.
“In today’s environment, it is more important than ever that young Canadians have the skills and information they need to participate and succeed in the job market,” said Mr. Goguen. “Our government is proud to promote activities that encourage young women to explore their career options and take full advantage of the job opportunities available to them.”
With assistance from the federal Youth Awareness program, Enterprise Greater Moncton will organize its second annual Women’s Summit, entitled “Gender Diversity in the Technological Workplace: Technology is Borderless“. The Summit, which takes place September 14–15, will provide attendees with information on careers in the trades and technology sectors, as well as the opportunity to network with employers and educators.
