charity logo

ms infinity programs introduce girls to exciting career options and positive female role models in science and technology. Together, we bust the myths about scientists and their careers... you don't need to wear a lab coat to be a scientist! Immigrating Women in Science - We provide support to immigrating professional women in the field. Our mission is to develop a community where women can share their experience, seek advice and broaden their networks. We publish a monthly newsletter designed to help internationally-trained women with the challenges and barriers they face in starting and building their careers in Canada. Make Possible is a project funded by Status of Women Canada with the goal to create opportunities for women in technology through mentorship, networking, professional development and leadership. The SCWIST Mentorship Project is part of the Government of Canada's Status of Women Initiative to develop methods to attract and retain women in technology, and advance the Canadian digital economy. The SCWIST Mentorship Project will provide mentoring support, networking connections, professional development and leadership opportunities to help women reach their full potential in the technology sector and all STEM fields. This project is well aligned with SCWIST goals to promote, encourage and empower women and girls in science, engineering and technology.
