The AWSN network assists STEM outreach programs to communicate and share resources, allowing all groups to support each other and achieve common goals.
: To build the greater network for programs in Alberta that give science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) a higher profile in society as a career of choice, focusing on underrepresented populations.
Our Vision: To be the Alberta leader of support for STEM programs that foster equal opportunities for all to succeed.
The common goals of our greater network include:
Giving STEM a higher profile as a career of choice.
Facilitating equal opportunities for all people to succeed in STEM, regardless of background or stage of career. Our current focus is on young women, new graduates, First Nations youth, rural youth, STEM trained newcomers and STEM trained women.
AWSN assists both hosted and member programs through grants, mentorship, non-profit status for new initiatives, advertising of events, volunteer recruitment and opportunities to communicate and learn from like-minded organizations and people.
