WWEST Associate Chairs Program

WWEST is proud to announce the WWEST Associate Chairs Program. This will establish up to three satellite WWEST programs across the BC/Yukon region at NSERC-eligible institutions to increase impact in communities outside the lower mainland of BC. The WWEST Associate Chairs will act as role-models and will deliver programs in their region based on existing WWEST programs as well as their own proposed activities. WWEST Associate Chair activities will align with WWEST’s mission to engage industry, the community and students to increase the awareness and participation of women and other under-represented groups in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields of study and careers.
(See the WWEST 24 Month Report to find out more about WWEST's programs.)
