Research on education shows that girls are less likely to consider a career in STEM. Many factors construct the archetypal scientist in our minds and lead youth to be interested in sciences. Some of these factors include cultural context, home environment, and teaching methods¹. Fortunately, the concept of a “scientific identity” can be influenced. After parents, teachers have the most impact in moulding young people, and research shows that certain attitudes or educational strategies can encourage young women to see themselves as scientists².


Parité sciences develops training content to help teachers embrace these attitudes and strategies, encouraging young women with an interest and gift for STEM to pursue higher education and careers of their choice.

Why does Parité sciences exist?


The situation

Society often fuels the idea that STEM is a masculine domain. However, women's and men's skills are equal. On a local or global scale, women in STEM are continuously working on promising research for the benefit of society as a whole.

Did you know?

In Quebec, the graduation rate for women in STEM programs has been stagnating for nearly 50 years. However, graduation rates from all university programs combined has increased markedly for women during this same period.


Do you teach at a high school or college level?

You and your colleagues from across Quebec are at the heart of the solution for creating a significant impact, remove barriers, and deconstruct stereotypes in STEM.

We work to help the teaching community to understand issues related to the representation of women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) so that they can increase girls' interest in science.
