Laurier Centre for Women in Science

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