It is of utmost importance for the Global Apprenticeship Network (GAN) to ensure that the youth of today – both young women and men alike – see a future of viable employment opportunities. By encouraging young women to begin their careers as apprentices, we can provide them with the opportunity to excel in traditionally male professions (i.e. STEM fields) and create an avenue for more women to reach the boardroom.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
