Founded in 2008, WiSER (Women in Science, Engineering & Research) is a sub-community of University of Alberta’s WISEST aiming at serving the needs of graduate students and early-career professionals.

We support the retention and advancement of women and under-represented groups in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
