Calling all women in STEM!

Whether you’re studying STEM, curious about it, or just looking to grow your professional network: the Society for Canadian Women in Science and Technology (SCWIST) and Science World are thrilled to invite you to the 30th annual Wonder Women Networking Evening!

“Networking during COVID-19?” you may gasp. As you may have guessed, we’ve adapted the event to happen virtually, using Zoom. We’re all pros now, right?

This event is designed specifically for university students, early career professionals, and those considering a career change, who are looking to learn more about working and succeeding as a woman in the STEM fields.

So, who are the “Wonder Women”? They are a diverse group of women thriving in STEM careers across Canada, who are passionate about sharing their stories and expertise with the next generation of STEM leaders.

The event takes place on Thursday, March 11, 2021 from 5:30pm PST to 7:30pm PST.

Tickets are free but donations are kindly accepted on behalf of our friends at Science World, Vancouver’s much-loved and iconic interactive science centre.

Hope to see you all there! Until March 11 – stay Wonder-ful!
