Women in STEM 6:30 pm
Women in STEM @ 13th Street Winery
Sep 24 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Women in STEM is back! Join Innovate Niagara for an evening of networking, insights on gender and diversity in STEM organizations and of course, food and wine.

Studies about the lack of women in senior management at tech firms make headlines. Businesses, governments, universities, and civic organizations run a range of programs to promote more women in STEM, from camps to teach girls to code to better maternity leave policies. In this keynote talk, Dr. Kira Lussier will draw on the insights from the latest research on gender and diversity in STEM organizations, so that we can think together about the ways that organizations can help or hinder women in STEM fields. Research shows that gender-balanced firms are crucial to ensuring that social biases don’t get replicated in designing technology– to ensure, for example, that crash-test dummies aren’t designed with only men in mind. History shows us that women have been responsible for major scientific discoveries, like DNA, and for programming the first computers. The aim of this talk is to bring the insights from this research and history into your own experience as women in STEM organizations. This event...
