About the Centre
What are our goals?
- To attract women into science and mathematical/quantitative fields

Why is this important?
Achieving gender equity will:
- Strengthen science and technology research in Canada
- Potentially double the highly skilled workforce in science and technology in Canada.
- Increase the number of female leaders and role models in academia, government and industry
