Women in STEM, a club that advocates for diversity.

About Us

A student run organization founded in 2013 at the University of Waterloo.



We connect women and under-represented minorities in STEM by building a community to share ideas and learn new skills.



We empower young minds with the skills to become forward-thinking and driven leaders.



We advocate for women in STEM fields, educate, and raise awareness about the growing community.


Our Mission

We hope to deliver a regular programme of events spanning all STEM topics which promote collaboration, creativity, and open-mindedness to all students. We believe that no matter how small, we can make a difference.

Our Events

We run a variety of events ranging from socializing to workshops.

We also invite STEM professionals to do takeovers on our Instagram! Check it out here!
