All About iWIST
We’re a not for profit society based in Victoria BC (Vancouver Island). Our mission is to build and support a community for women in STEM. We host events six – eight times a year and our members often volunteer for local outreach activities.
We collaborate with other organizations such as Engineers & Geoscientists BC, BCWiTT, Innovation Island, UVic Women in Science, Innovate BC, Export Development Canada, Gamer Girls, VIATEC, Victoria Foundation, universities, colleges and local industry reps.
We are currently setting up a new system of membership – no fees as we work towards securing operational funding from corporate and government agencies.! As one the hosts of a recent STEM Crawl said, “You can’t be it unless you see it” and we want to keep women in their chosen STEM fields to become inspiration for colleagues and the next wave of STEM women.
