Are you a woman looking to advance your career, re-enter the workforce or start your own business? Seneca HELIX’s HERizons program is helping to dismantle gender barriers in the workplace by providing free career support and training specifically developed for women.
Funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Adult Learning, Literacy and Essential Skills – Women’s Employment Readiness Pilot Program.
HERizons will provide those who identify as women with free training, access to thought leaders and networking opportunities to help you make a realistic and achievable plan for the future you want.
All components of the program are free-of-charge, and are developed from an inclusive, women-focused perspective. These components include:
- targeted workshops, online and in-person
- immersive VR simulation learning sessions on topics such as how to prepare for interviews and public speaking
- career development sessions
- microgrants for female entrepreneurs
- networking events with successful entrepreneurs
- HELIX RISE, an annual summit that brings together female thought leaders to share insights on topics such as personal branding, finances and more
- access to technology (e.g. laptops and printers), childcare and/or transportation for in-person event participants
