In the summer of 2018, we surveyed faculty at several Atlantic Canadian universities in Natural Sciences, Engineering, and Computer Science departments about their workplace climate. This research survey was conducted in partnership with NSERC CWSE Dr. Annemieke Farenhorst and her team at the University of Manitoba.
We are pleased to offer substantial sponsorship for female students and apprentices in Science, Engineering, Trades, and Technology fields, in the Atlantic Provinces to attend workshops within the WinSETT Leadership Program Series.
The WinSETT Leadership Program is built upon the experiences of Canadian women and is the only Canadian program focused exclusively on women in SETT. The Leadership Program features six full-day workshops run in pairs over several months. For more information on the Leadership Program Workshops, visit http://www.winsett.ca/programs/leadership-program. Click schedule on the right hand side to see a list of the current offerings.
This report, prepared by Andrea Perreault in consultation with the NSERC Chairs for Women in Science & Engineering, takes a look at the percentages of women in STEM fields in the various regions of Canada. It also looks at the distribution of minority groups working in STEM fields in Canada by gender.
The NSERC CWSE National Network National Conference Grant is administered by the NSERC CWSE Chairs. Applications for funding are accepted three times per year.
