Events can be from something spectacular to just a coffee with your STEM friends. Not sure what to do?  We have put together an impressive list of suggestions or leave an idea here .   Not from Alberta but want to join the fun?  Let us know about your event too. 


Do you know an exceptional woman in STEM who serves her community as a mentor, a teacher, an innovator, or is an up-and-comer?  Nominate someone today and explain why you think they should be recognized. Those selected will be invited and recognized at AWSN’s STEM Affair on October 14, 2017.

WISEST Turns 35

Join us on October 12, 2017 to celebrate WISEST's 35th Anniversary and enjoy Portal Theatre's “FRINGE-Favourite” production of "NoBelles".

"Of the 575 individual people who have won the Nobel Prize in the sciences, only 16 have been women. “NoBelles” tells the stories of some of the women who won the Prize, and some who didn't, but should have. Using a variety of storytelling techniques, “NoBelles” introduces some of the most fascinating women to ever don a lab coat!"

Event will take place at 6:30 pm at the Myer Horowitz Theatre (University of Alberta)

After the play, there will be a post-show panel discussion focusing on our theme “Oh, the places we have been, we are at and we will go!”  

We are excited to announce our post show panelists will include:

Dr. Margaret-Ann Armour, Associate Dean of Diversity, Faculty of Science, UofA

Ms. Linda Duncan, Member of Parliament, Edmonton - Strathcona

Calgary Tower

You will need to find a great view of the Calgary Tower Oct 12, 2017 as it will be lit in Purple for AWSN and our second WinSTEM Week from dusk to midnight.  We invite all AWSN members and supporters to gather at Scotsman's Hill (Enmax Park) for hot chocolate and a photo at 7PM.  Event is free, but register so we have enough cupcakes! 


How about we meet you there?   The public is welcome - come and join the celebration.  



Corporate Ticket Challenge

Last year, one very large Calgary-based international company suggested a unique twist on sponsorship and we challenge other companies to do the same.  


1.  Promote WinSTEM Week to your female staff and encouraging them to come up with WinSTEM Week activities.  

2.  Expense the ticket of any of your staff interested in attending The STEM Affair Saturday Oct 14, 2017.


Are there any other companies out there that have women working for them?  Have you said "Thank you" to them for the great job they do?  Would you match this idea from a great corporate sponsor?  


Women in STEM:  Ask your supervisor.  See if they would support you celebrating who you are by supporting your ticket price.  More than 1/2 of each ticket goes directly to AWSN programs.
