Canadian WISE Groups
Welcome! This space is used for
Women in Science & Engineering
groups from across
to share ideas with each other. The goal is for this space to
act as a reference
for all women's support groups, when they encounter challenges, need ideas for events, need help creating a website, or wish to start a group from scratch. The groups can represent both students and professionals in academia or industry, though the majority of groups are indeed within higher education.

How it Started
This initiative was started after two executives of
Carleton University's Women in Science and Engineering
(CU-WISE), Gail Carmichael and Barbora Dej, gave a talk at the 2008
National Conference on Women in Engineering
, hosted by the University of Western Ontario. CU-WISE hopes that it will grow and become a valuable resource for all groups like ours! You are encouraged to continuously contribute to this wiki so that it would grow and stay relevant. CU-WISE is also working with ESSCO to create a document encompassing a lot of the information provided in this wiki.
