RESOLUTION:THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that BPW Ontario urges the Government of Ontario through the Ministry of Education and the Ontario Women's Directorate, to both work with BPW Clubs, local School Boards and Career Studies Teachers to support and increase in particular the Grade 10 Career Studies curriculum, and all other grades in general by:
- addressing gender issues that result in the continued under representation of women in trades and technology by, for example, encouraging young women to study maths and sciences;
- developing partnerships with local business and professional women to gather relevant career-related information and facilitate access to community resources for mentoring, coaching and networking.
