On November 8, join McMaster University Library, The Health Sciences Library and McMaster Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) for a  symposium to support, celebrate and advocate for women in science and engineering.

This special event will feature keynote speaker Dr. Rita Orji, a faculty member in the Faculty of Computer Science at Dalhousie University, who will speak about her efforts to combat the gender imbalance in her field and encourage more women—and women of colour – to participate in computer science research.

The symposium will include a panel discussion featuring five inspiring panelists who will share their unique experiences and perspectives. Participants will also have the opportunity to take part in informal, round-table discussions led by members of the McMaster community.
