Next Dimension introduces VR to teens at a Career Expo

A vendor’s experience as a national sponsor of Build a DreamPosted on March 18, 2019

When the opportunity presented itself to become a national sponsor of Build a Dream, we were immediately intrigued.  We wanted to know more about the Build a Dream initiative, about the team behind the scenes, about the long-term commitment, and growth plans of the program.  We were pleasantly surprised to learn that each volunteer member of the Build a Dream team had as much passion for the inclusivity of women and girls in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) as their founder, Nour Hachem-Fawaz.

Their dedication to empowering and encouraging young women to enter these skilled workforces stretched far beyond the borders of Windsor-Essex.  This is a movement ON THE MOVE right up Highway 401.  Their growth pattern mimicked that of our own at Next Dimension.  With offices in Windsor, London, Waterloo, and Markham, our markets match almost identically to Build a Dream 2019. [Consider this our official request for a York-Peel Region tour stop in 2020!]

Brandy of Next Dimension helps a Build a Dream attendee adjust her Lenovo VR goggles.We believe so strongly in this initiative that we brought Lenovo, one of our key vendor partners, into the campaign.  Next Dimension, together with Lenovo, have taken girls and their parents on journeys to faraway places while never leaving our event booth.  We have given these young girls and their families the opportunity to jump into today’s technology by way of Virtual Reality (VR).  As visitors put on the headsets and immerse themselves into faraway places, we discuss the many practical applications that are currently in development that use VR among various sectors such as manufacturing, health care, construction, and education.

We are just one of the many booths sharing information and insight at each Build a Dream tour stop.  Of the many benefits of this sponsorship, we particularly value our opportunities to:

  • Connect with families in the communities we serve
  • Showcase our brand to future talent
  • Align Next Dimension with companies that share the same core values

Consider adding your corporation to the list of sponsors already benefiting from this empowering movement.  Together we can Build a Dream for the next generation of female leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
