Western Women in Neuroscience

Who We Are

 

Western Women in Neuroscience (WINS) is a graduate student-run group at the University of Western Ontario that brings together individuals who are interested in the advancement of women in science and engineering, with an emphasis on neuroscience. Western WINS seeks to educate members on the issues facing women in STEM fields, provide resources to help combat these issues, and build a supportive network of individuals.

 

 

What We Do

 

Professional Development – We organize talks and workshops led by faculty members in STEM from Western and the affiliated colleges. Topics in the past have included: interviewing, negogiation, myths and facts about women in science, management, and work/life balance.

Build a Supportive Network – We organize monthly social events to give members the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with one another.

Community Outreach – We have organized a high school program in which we visit local schools and teach the students about neuroscience research while simultaneously exposing them to women in science. We also have a program for parents and teachers to equip them with strategies to motivate and encourage young women to pursue STEM.
