Event description

Description

The third annual IWISCI Conference will be taking place February 10th, 2019 from 10am-4pm at McMaster University. This conference was started in 2016 to highlight what it means to be a woman in science, and to bring students together with distinguished female-identifying individuals in STEM to invoke meaningful discussion including all perspectives and backgrounds. This year our goal is to focus on the changing perspectives of science through all forms of media. The day will consist of a keynote speaker, Professor Mya, a panel discussion, and a choice of two interactive workshops. Lunch and a light breakfast are included in the cost of the ticket.
