Description

In honour of Ada Lovelace, and the international Ada Lovelace Day celebrated annually on the second Tuesday of October, please join us for a celebration of women in STEM!

We would like to invite all students, postdocs, professors, and their friends and role models for an evening to celebrate the accomplishments of past and current women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

We are excited to announce that our Keynote Speaker will be Dr. Margaret-Ann Armour, Associate Dean of Faculty of Science of Diversity at the Univeristy of Alberta and the founder of WISEST- Women in Scholarship, Engineering, Science, and Technology. Dr. Armour is an award-winning scientist and has dedicated her life to the inclusion of women in science and engineering.
