Did you know that ...
Ottawa-Gatineau has the second largest concentration of science and engineering employment out of 316 North American cities, surpassed only by Silicon Valley. One in nine employees is a scientist or engineer. Source: Ottawa.ca, 2015.(http://investottawa.ca/why-ottawa/)
Mentor STEM Leaders (MSL) is the result of partnering efforts between Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Ottawa and other contributors . It was formed to bring women pursuing studies in Science, Engineering and Technology mentorship and to support their professional and personal development.
The programs are designed to provide students with the opportunity to gain insights from women with established careers, professional coaches and Human Resources specialists and, of course, their peers.
We are very fortunate to be able to offer this program with the generous support of the Faculties of Science, Engineering and Medicine at Carleton University and the University of Ottawa, and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Chair for Women in Science and Engineering (Ontario) .
