Locelle Aims to Empower Women in STEM
Retention of female employees in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields is a major issue — the turnover rate is more than twice as high for women as it is for men, and over 56 per cent of the women in the field quit their jobs mid-career due to isolation, frustration and loneliness.
To address this issue, local company Locelle has developed a location-based networking platform to help women in STEM connect.
The company was recently selected as a Featured Startup at Collision, a global tech conference in Toronto.
