WWEST is excited to host the WinSETT Centre as they present all five of their professional development workshops in Vancouver for the first time. After successfully running this leadership program in Edmonton for a number of years, the WinSETT Centre is now offering it across Canada. These workshops are tailored primarily to early to mid-career women working in the traditionally male-dominated fields of science, engineering, technology and trades (SETT) but graduate students and upper undergraduates will also find them an incredibly valuable experience. The program has been developed by professionals based on the experiences of women in SETT and is grounded in research and practices that work.
