SCWIST and Science World are excited to once again host the Wonder Women Networking Evening. This networking event has been going on for more than 30 years, and this is our third year hosting it online for women across Canada.
Designed specifically for university students, early career professionals, and those considering a career change, you’ll connect with some incredible “Wonder Women” in STEM who are successful in their fields and passionate about sharing their expertise with the next generation of STEM professionals.
We’ll be meeting on Zoom, and using breakout rooms for a few rounds of networking between attendees and Wonder Women mentors. Each room will be hosted by two Wonder Women in the same or similar fields, and attendees will be assigned to rooms based on the fields they are interested in. You’re free to select as many topics as you like from our list, but please note that we can only use 2-3 of them to assign you to 2-3 different rooms. You’ll also receive the “WWNE Field Guide” ahead of time to learn about the various Wonder Women mentors.
Not sure how to network, and virtually? Not to worry – just show up with a question or two, ready to listen, but we’ll start the night off with some networking “how-tos” and provide some tips along the way.
This event was created for those who identify as women in STEM fields, due to a lack of networking opportunities for women. To further our goal of supporting those under-represented in STEM, we invite participants and mentors who identify as trans, genderqueer, non-binary, two-spirit, or gender questioning as long as the framing of the event as a women’s networking space does not feel incongruent with your identity.
Don’t miss this lively evening of networking and fun—register to save your spot today!
Science World – Science World is a charitable non-profit and science centre based in Vancouver, BC that engages learners across the province in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art & design and math). Visitors to their iconic geodesic dome explore interactive, hands-on exhibits and galleries that nurture their process of discovery and inspire connection with their natural, physical and built environments. Participants in their outreach programs—students, teachers and families in every region of BC—access the experience of Science World through virtual visits from scientists, livestream science shows, and weekly after school STEAM mentorship. At Science World, they inspire the next generation of problem solvers, world changers and nerds.
