The Women in Science and Engineering - University of Toronto (WISE U of T) Chapter hosts an annual national conference with a lineup of incredible speakers, workshops, panelists, competitions and company sponsors. POWE has subsidized the trip for five female undergraduate delegates to Toronto for the 11th annual national conference: Leaders of Tomorrow in January 2023. The conference aims to fuel professional and personal development and to ignite the drive of delegates to pursue their passions, which they afterwards share with the POWE community!
Every year in the Fall, the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) hosts the world’s largest conference and career fair dedicated toward women in engineering and technology and brings together the leading businesses, organizations, universities and innovators in engineering. Since 2015, POWE has subsidized the trip for two female undergraduate students to attend the event. This is an amazing opportunity for our POWE representatives, as they can connect with professionals from around the world like never before! When they return from the conference, they pass on what they have learned to the rest of our members at one of our general meetings.
