One of the most important things AWSN does is recognize individuals and organizations that are making a difference in the community and/or their STEM field. Recognition comes in the form of biographies, mentor stories, Minerva Mentoring Award, AWSN scholarships and educational bursaries.

Minerva Mentoring Award: AWSN recognizes an single individual each year, who has made an inspirational contribution towards the mentoring of women and girls in the areas of STEM.

AWSN Scholarship: This annual $3,000 scholarship is offered Alberta-wide and is awarded to third year and above post-secondary student (with approximately 50 or more applicants).

WinSTEM Week: Celebrating the careers of women in STEM, AWSN supports this week-long celebration by communicating the many events held in the province. WinSTEM week always begins the second Tuesday in October, coinciding with Ada Lovelace Day. STEM Affair: Honouring leaders in the community and celebrating the achievements of AWSN, members programs and others in the community who have supported further STEM initiatives.

Our Mission: Enabling a culture of diversity and inclusivity through STEM Programs. AWSN acts as the platform that initiates or supports programs, partners and stakeholders who amplify, magnify, or accelerate systemic and social change within the greater community, allowing all to participate to their full capacity in STEM
