Inspiring Young Women in STEM

Western Women in Neuroscience and BrainsCAN invite you to attend the 2nd Biennial Inspiring Young Women in STEM Conference on Sunday, March 4, 2018 at Western! This conference aims to inspire, engage, and empower young women who are considering a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) by connecting them with role models in leadership positions, cultivating early research skills, and providing networking opportunities with STEM industries within the context of a supportive community.

Undergraduate, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers of all genders from Canadian universities are invited to attend this one-day conference to hear from four key leaders in academia and industry discuss their exciting research and inspirational career paths, network with professionals at our Industry Fair, learn about research opportunities at our STEM Graduate Program Expo, and have the unique opportunity to present your own scientific research in the Undergraduate Poster Competition.
