The Society for Canadian Women in Science and Technology (SCWIST) is excited to once again host the Wonder Women Networking Evening. This networking event has been going on for more than 33 years, and this is our fourth 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.

“Networking is not about just connecting people. It’s about connecting people with people, people with ideas, and people with opportunities.” – Michele Jannae

We’ll be meeting on Whova, 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 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.
