Our summer newsletter is here!
The NSERC Chairs for Women in Science and Engineering are pleased to present their 2020 Coast-to-Coast update brochure. It contains information about each of the five Chair programs across Canada, and updates as to what the CWSE Network has been collaborating on.
Over the past couple months we have been highlighting STEM organizations right here in Atlantic Canada. It was important to us to highlight organizations that strive for STEM inclusion for equity deserving groups. Here is a reference document with all all of the organizations we have featured and their contact information!
Recommendations from the NSERC National Network of Charis for Women in Science and Engineering. Supporting EDI during crisis/disruption requires focusing on people; putting people’s diverse needs ahead of the usual institutional processes and rules by first differentiating what is “needed” from what is “wanted”.
This handy brochure developed by the Chair for Women in Science and Engineering – Quebec Region provides helpful advice and guidance for increasing equity, diversity, and inclusion in research.
This document features 10 tips on enhancing EDI within university administration. It was developed by the Chair for Women in Science and Engineering -Prairie Region.
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.

Abstract: Science and engineering research excellence can be maximized if the selection of researchers is made
from 100% of the pool of human talent. This requires policies and approaches that encourage broad
sections of society, including women and other underrepresented groups, to participate in research.
Institutional policies, interpersonal interactions, and individuals’ attitudes are drivers of workplace
culture. Here, some new evidence-based and systematic approaches with a focus on culture are
proposed to foster women’s inclusion and success in science and engineering.

The 2019 Atlantic ConnecTions Conference, which took place at the University of Prince Edward Island in May, was a great opportunity to get together with local people and organizations focused on the recruitment and retention of Women in SETT. The theme of ACT 2019 was ‘Sustaining Women in SETT’ a nod to our host venue, the Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering at UPEI.
