The Women in STEM event is next week and you are invited! Our past events consisted of short talks from Brock University's professors and graduate students, and they were very successful. We had 125 attendees in 2020, 275 in 2021, and incredible support from Brock University and the Niagara region community from the beginning. In our 3rd edition, we are keen to expand our knowledge on the underrepresentation of women and other minorities in science and learn more about what we can do to achieve gender equity in STEM fields. With that in mind, we are expanding our annual event to incorporate a range of programming during the week of February 7 to 11, 2022. Due to the evolving pandemic, our events will happenonline. You canregister to attend the event here: https://forms.office.com/r/wf2dKFgBZY. Events are free and open to everyone. I am sending you some promotional material toshare with students, both graduate and undergraduate, and anyone else you think might benefit from the event- it's open to members of the public too, including younger students!
We hope our annual event 1) improves the recognition and visibility of women in STEM fields and 2) increases awareness of the issues that drive women away once they are involved in science, hoping to increase retention. Gender disparity in STEM continues to be an essential topic in the scientific community and we believe this event will be of great value to our community.

CFUW is offering a series of free pay equity virtual workshops targeted at students and college/university personnel. The series,“Raising Awareness and Empowering Women through Pay Equity”will run from October 2021 - March 2022 and seeks to provide diverse women with the tools to advocate for pay equity and engage in salary negotiation in order to address the gender wage gap.
The three-series workshops include:
Pay Equity ‘ hands-on’ Salary Negotiation: This workshop is geared toward graduating college and university students and offers practical tools to help young women identify their transferable skills, bolster their resumes and learn evidence-based negotiation strategies.
‘Train the Trainers’: Participants are trained as facilitators to effectively deliver the Pay Equity Salary Negotiation Workshop for future utilization.
Pay Equity Advocacy Campaign: This workshop focuses on how to raise public awareness about the pay gaps in Canada, how to mount a campaign, and how participants can become pay equity leaders in their community.
Each workshop is approximately 3-hours in length and will be conducted over Zoom. There is no cost to participate in the workshops, as CFUW has received a grant from Employment and Social Development Canada.All workshop materials are available in English and French.
The VSN runs about an 80 person volunteer program, which provides 24/7 services and support to victims and survivors of crime and tragic circumstances throughout the Niagara Region. Our volunteers dedicate a minimum of two 12 hour shifts a month. While on call for their shift, they may be dispatched on-scene with a partner or asked to provide telephone support to victims. Volunteers may have the chance to work side by side with police and other community agencies such as CARSA or SADV unit. We are looking to do a new volunteer training class beginning in January and running until April (I have attached all important dates). We are looking for individuals (age 21+) to think about applying to our volunteer position. These volunteers would be trained in the areas of crisis intervention and the ethics of helping, communication, domestic violence, sexual assault, safety planning, sudden death (including suicide and homicide), elder abuse, property crimes, multi-casualty occurrences, as well as the importance of self-care and debriefing.
