Laurier Centre for Women in Science

Explore, Engage, Connect

Launched in 2012, the Laurier Centre for Women in Science (WinS) is proud to champion women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). We are building an inclusive scientific community through research, action, and communication. Indeed, our ultimate goal is to make this centre redundant. With your help and support, we know we can.
