As part of the Government of Canada Status of Women Initiative to advance women in technology, SCWIST is pleased to host a ‘Becoming Leaders’ Workshop in collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Women in Science, Engineering, Trades and Technology (WinSETT Centre).

WinSETT will deliver a professional leadership development workshop for early to mid-career women engineers, scientists and technologists.  This workshop is part of a series of Women in SETT Leadership workshops developed by professionals, based on the experiences of women in SETT and grounded in research and practices that work.  Evaluation and feedback from over 750 participants in 44 workshops held across Canada since 2002 has been very positive across industry, government and academia:

The workshop was excellent. Without a doubt it is a “must do” for young women in the early phase of their career. 

Very engaging, educational and empowering. Thank you.

I really appreciate all the information, insights and tools. I will use them!

It’s always interesting to hear the speakers, hearing about their personal achievements and struggles in their careers. It helps to make the information in the workshops more personal.

What are some of the successful leadership development strategies for women in science and technology in their early to mid careers?  This full day workshop combines presentation of information, sharing of leadership experiences, and the active engagement of participants in exercises and discussion to:

Increase awareness of factors that influence leadership success
Gain confidence to make career and leadership development choices
Share and acquire useful tips and strategies
Develop a preliminary action plan to advance personal leadership potential
Network with other women with a variety of experiences in science and technology

Cost:  $50 includes continental breakfast, lunch and all workshop materials including a pre-workshop survey

Registration is limited to 24 participants (so register early!)
Registration Deadline: July 14, 2014
