The Society for Canadian Women in Science and Technology (SCWIST) and Science World are proud to present the annual Wonder Women Networking Evening. Participants meet amazing women with careers in science and engineering and learn more about their pathways.
This event will be held under the geodesic dome and is a joint venture between Science World and SCWIST. The Wonder Women Networking Evening is for everyone who identifies as a woman in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), interested in learning where your degree can take you.
Undergraduate and graduate students will find the event particularly relevant. We also invite postdoctoral researchers and working professionals to sharpen your networking skills and connect with women who are as passionate about science, technology, and engineering as you are!
Join us for a lively evening of networking, food, and fun. Make new friends and find a mentor! Entrance includes: •Light dinner •A chance to learn from more than 30 local wonder women with careers in STEM •Printed biographies and email addresses of the Wonder Women •Networking with Wonder Women as well as other participants •An OMNIMAX® Film – Great Bear Rainforest •Door Prizes
