The purpose of this club is to connect and support female graduate and undergraduate students pursuing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields. Through newsletters, social events, guest lectures and professional development seminars, this network is open to all genders and persons who want to contribute to the success of these women. Membership offers a variety of resources that aim to support and enable members to form relationships with peers, professors, and industry professionals.
THE GOAL IS TO ACHIEVE A SUPPORTIVE AND ENGAGING ENVIRONMENT THAT FOSTERS COLLABORATION AND SUCCESS OF WOMEN PURSUING SCIENCE FIELDS.
We're here to help with anything from professional networking, skill development, scholarship opportunities, building relationships, and ultimately fostering the success of undergraduate and graduate women at the University of Victoria (and beyond).
This webpage also acts to provide inspiration through featured women scientists at all levels. If there is a prof, a peer, or someone in the community that you want us to get in touch with, please reach out in our contact form.
