May 02, 2018

Inspiring Fifty, in partnership with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Canada, and with the support of the Senate of Canada, is proud to organize the first ever Canadian edition of the event, in order to identify and showcase the achievements and advancements of Canadian women in the science, tech, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.

Canada and the Netherlands strongly promote the advancement of diversity in the STEM fields – both countries recognize that the recruitment and retention of women and girls in these sectors will foster greater innovation, as well as a more inclusive and impactful workforce.
