March 5, 2021 – Government of PEI: Eight community organizations will receive funding support to create greater opportunities for Island women and girls. Funding through the 2021 Interministerial Women’s Secretariat Grants is for community group projects that focus on encouraging women and girls to pursue opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering + Math (STEM), skilled trades, and leadership, as well as engaging men and boys in gender-based violence prevention.
“I’m really excited about this round of funding to organizations in our province. These projects will provide direct training, enhance skills, create valuable resources and engage youth,” says Natalie Jameson, minister responsible for Status of Women.
“These grants will help build safer, more inclusive and supportive communities for Island women and girls and strengthen their leadership abilities, voices and confidence.”
This year, STEAM PEI is one of the organizations that will receive a grant for a project to help increase the number of women in STEM fields.
