Atlantic ConnecTions Conference 2017

Supporting the Career Progression and Retention of Women in SETT

The Atlantic ConnecTions Conference provides an opportunity for women in Science, Engineering, Trades and Technology (SETT) from Atlantic Canada to share their experiences of studying and working in male-dominated fields, to network with others, and to develop action items with the goal of advancing women in SETT. Women and their male colleagues in SETT from a cross-section of industries, education, government, and not-for-profit organizations are invited to attend the conference.

The conference is being held at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia on  May 3 & 4, 2017.
This is a great opportunity to meet CCWESTT (Canadian Coalition for Women in Engineering, Science, Trades, and Technology) member organizations.
