Meet the Locals: Why Female Owned & Operated Businesses Matter for Future Generations

As mentioned in our Canadian Business Trends blog post:

‘As a female-owned, second-generation Canadian business, the all-female management of ZHT are aware that they represent a minority in the high-precision CNC manufacturing industry of Vancouver. And they acknowledge that this representation contributes to creating positive role models for current and future generations of business owners, and all individuals entering machining and manufacturing in Canada.’

We believe that being a female owned and operated business matters for future generations, especially as it relates to girls seeking careers in STEM.

Understanding the STEM Gap in Society
There is a big push for females to fill in the STEM gap. ‘STEM’ represents science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and as male-dominated fields, empowering girls to jump on board and champion these arenas is important. Not only can it bring diversity to careers backed by STEM, but also offer an entirely different thought process to the status quo. Something ZHT lives, promotes and assists with in training females in!
