While the number of women working in STEM fields has increased a lot over the past decade, men still vastly outnumber women; in fact women only represent 20 percent  of Canada’s technology workforce, and gender gaps are particularly high in some of the fastest-growing and highest-paid jobs. That’s exactly why Kylie Woods founded The Chic Geek, a nonprofit aimed at helping women find success in these fields through mentorship, training, and community support. She also runs her own digital agency fresh & nimble, and is a mom to twin girls. —Josephine Cruz
