Creating Connections 5.0, May 5-6, 2017
WWEST (Westcoast Women in Engineering, Science and Technology) will bring together people of all genders and backgrounds for
Creating Connections 5.0 on May 5 & 6, 2017.
The conference will include presentations and workshops surrounding issues of personal and professional development, networking and inspiration.
Creating Connections 5.0 aims to engage industry, the community and students in BC and the Yukon to increase the regional awareness and
participation of women and other under-represented groups in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
The Creating Connections conference series hopes to facilitate meaningful dialogue to create a space where everyone can explore and participate in
STEM to better our world.
Increasing gender diversity in STEM and creating an engaged community of individuals that respect each other will better prep STEM industries to
create sustainable solutions and developments that better humanity and our world. Previous Creating Connections conferences have resulted in
immediate, statistically significant positive changes for both participants' occupational self-efficacy and their awareness of the value of
gender diversity. See how Creating Connections 3.0 had a lasting impact.
CC 5.0 Registration will open in January, 2017.
Contact Creating Connections 5.0 for conference and registration updates.
