"hEr VOLUTION and Girls in STEM Fields"
Service Leader: Melanie
Doina Oncel is the Founder of hEr VOLUTION, a registered non-profit organization focusing on creating opportunities for girls and young women in S.T.E.M (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Doina’s past experiences of a new immigrant, youth at risk, low income, and past domestic violence has led her to become the voice for women and young girls who are in similar situations today. Doina’s educational background with a AWCCA diploma from George Brown College, has been the driving force behind her passion for eliminating violence against women, and her involvement in creating opportunities for girls and young women in Canada. Doina believes that by sharing her story she will help other women see that they are not alone while hoping to encourage them to speak up too. Furthermore, Doina strongly believes that education and employment is key to empowerment of all women, hence why she has dedicated her life to create opportunities for women in S.T.E.M. In this session, Doina will be talking about her journey that has driven her to where she is today and about how and why she decided that hEr VOLUTION is the solution to not only close the gender gap for women in STEM but also as a long term strategy to eradicating poverty for women in Canada.
