WSTEM TO is a Toronto-based initiative aimed at creating a strong and supportive local community of women leaders in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), dedicated to gender equality in all STEM-related fields up to leadership levels.
Launched in May 2019, WSTEM TO recently exceeded 400 active members and continues to grow steadily. WSTEM TO fosters the advancement of our network by providing regular MeetUps, mentorship and professional development programs.
Marginalized women and their children in our community are severely affected by the pandemic due to a decline in
donations to local shelters. We reach out to our members and community to join our donation drive. More details here.
COVID19 is affecting everyone around the globe. During these difficult times, communities are a source of strength and WSTEM TO is continuing to serve as a platform for people to connect, share ideas and support each other.
We continue with our event series as planned while switching to an online platform and we hope to see you all soon, in person or virtually.
Take care and keep safe!

February 2021: WSTEM TO is thankful to our friends at Takeda Canada for their partnership and for their commitment to promote gender equality in STEM. Together, we share the vision of creating a Canadian ecosystem where women have an equal opportunity to excel in all STEM disciplines, including the biomedical fields. The only way towards scientific and technological excellence is by removing barriers and promoting inclusion. We look forward to a productive and meaningful partnership.
September 2020: WSTEM TO is delighted to acknowledge Ontario Bioscience Innovation Organization as our new partner. We look forward to this collaborative partnership enabling access of our community to various aspects of health innovation economy and working towards the common goal of making Ontario a leader in Bioscience Innovation and Commercialization.
August 2020: This month, we are also pleased to commence our collaboration with BioTalent Canada as they embark on a new journey for the Student Work Placement Program that now includes healthcare professionals across Canada. This is a great opportunity for employers in healthcare sector to bring on eager to learn students for a special project through personalized and quick application process and funds that cover up to $7500 of a student´s salary.
We encourage members of our network to utilize this program to hire students and for students to reach out to employers they are interested in and make them aware of this program.
