About the Event

The annual Gala commemorates the incredible achievements of those who are changing perceptions and challenging misconceptions in STEM within their fields as a day of unity, celebration, reflection, and advocacy. This event is open to all who are interested, including cis and trans women, as well as non-binary people who are comfortable in a space that centres the experiences of women.

We invite you to spend an evening in the company of outstanding and inspirational individuals across a variety of fields, who will speak about their diverse experiences and the challenges they face striving for equality in STEM.

This gala includes incredible keynote speakers, a panel discussion, a networking reception, and various games and prizes! Join us online on March 13th, from 4:30-9:00 PM EST as we challenge common misconceptions and perceptions in STEM culture!

A WCM representative will be given time to speak after the Panel and prior to the Networking Reception (where attendees will have the opportunity to mingle with WCM reps and visit the booth).
