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.

IWIST continues to grow as the largest community of women in STEM on Vancouver Island
