NSERC Chairs for Women in Science and Engineering

The NSERC Chairs for Women in Science and Engineering (CWSE) Program was launched in 1996. The goal of the program is to increase the participation and retention of women in science and engineering, and to provide role models for women active in, and considering, careers in these fields. The CWSE Program is regional—with one Chair for each of the Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, Prairies, and British Columbia/Yukon regions.

Atlantic Region – Dr. Tamara Franz-Odendaal

Ontario Region – Dr. Catherine Mavriplis
