Take a Leading Role

The Athena Digital Leaders program is training and placing women and new immigrants in leading AI and Data Science roles

As a woman or new immigrant in BC, you may be eligible to receive a wage subsidy to support an internship or long-term role in AI, Machine Learning or Data Science (AI/ML/DS). The wage subsidy will cover 43% of your salary for 18 weeks up to a maximum of $17,000 and, upon acceptance into the program, you can tell a prospective employer they will receive this benefit in hiring you.

In addition, our academic partners Northeastern University, SFU and UBC will be offering AI/ML/DS courses to train women and new immigrants who are currently in product management, software management and project management roles but who don’t necessarily have any experience in these fields. The tuition for the courses is covered 100% by the program (a $6,000 value)! If you are at a midpoint in your career and are considering a career change into AI/ML/DS, these courses offer a perfect bridge into this space.

Find out as soon as each new installment of funding becomes available to provide wage subsidies and to get notified of new AI/ML/DS course offerings. We have limited space and tuition coverage for the courses available so it is important to apply early!
