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. The community is comprised of individuals in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics from the academia, government, and industry.
We support the retention and advancement of women and under-represented groups in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
What We Offer
