Online resource promotes females in science and engineering
A new website called SFU WEST (Women in Engineering, Science and Technology) offers a virtual gathering place for support groups active in engineering, science and technology.
SFU WEST (www.sfu.ca/sfuwest) facilitates networking and an exchange of resources to provide guidance for females interested in pursuing careers and opportunities in science and technology.
In May 2015, SFU will host for the first time Creating Connections 4.0. This conference welcomes all genders to discuss the participation of women in science and technology, and offers personal and professional development seminars. SFU WEST contains information on Creating Connections 4.0, including sponsorship and registration information.
SFU WEST is supported by the faculties of Applied Sciences and Sciences.
