Join the Canadian Coalition of Women in Engineering, Science, Trades, and Technology (CCWESTT) on February 25, 2021, at 12 p.m. EST as they celebrate Black History Month with an exploration of three women’s lived experiences in science, engineering, technology, and trades (SETT).
“Our Stories: Black Women in STEM” will include panellists Jeanette Southwood, Engineers Canada’s Vice President, Corporate Affairs and Strategic Partnerships, Sierra Sparks, recent Dalhousie engineering graduate and Rhodes scholar, and Luam Araya, a biochemistry graduate from the University of Alberta. The discussion will leave participants with a better understanding of the past and present challenges that Black women face in SETT, and the role we all play in continuing to dismantle the anti-Black racism and implicit biases that exist in our fields.
The event is open to all and will be held virtually on Zoom. Register to attend here.
