Welcome to the Rosie Resource Portal

Welcome to the Rosie Resource Portal

The Rosie the Riveter-Inspired Initiative is one of the five Initiatives at The Prosperity Project™. As part of this Initiative, the Rosie Resource Portal is where you will find online resources for women in STEM, skilled trades, and leadership.

The Rosie the Riveter-Inspired Initiative has a mission to inspire and empower women and girls to pursue careers in STEM, skilled trades and leadership roles to aid in Canada’s economic recovery. This Portal is a ‘one-stop-shop’ that will tackle women’s limited access to training/job opportunities and role models/mentors and focuses on inspiring women and girls to make informed decisions about their education, training and employment pathways. By providing women and girls with the tools they need to succeed, we can increase the number of women in high-value add jobs and sectors in STEM, skilled trades and leadership.

The Rosie Initiative is grateful to Co-Presenting Partners Capital Power and Ontario Power Generation and Amplify Partner BGIS for their support.

Awareness Campaign: It's Not Complicated

It’s Not Complicated is a campaign that aims to raise awareness of women’s underrepresentation in STEM, skilled trades and leadership, and ensure women’s participation in Canada’s recovering economy. The It’s Not Complicated imagery highlights professions where women are proportionally under-represented. We are taking this opportunity to show women and girls that if you can see it, you can be it.

The Prosperity Project has created four other important Initiatives to ensure women are not forgotten during the pandemic – and are not left behind when we recover. These range from helping charitable organizations that focus on women meet funding challenges to undertaking research to understand how COVID-19 is affecting family life, work/life integration and women’s responsibilities at home.
