Volunteer with WISER
WISER welcomes individuals at any stages in their career to join our community. If you would like to volunteer with us, please contact us with your inquiry at email@example.com. If you are interested in joining the WISER executive team, we kindly ask you email us with the “expression of interest,” which should tell us a little bit about who you are, why you want to join the executive team, what type of volunteering experience you had, and what you can bring to the group. If there is a specific position that interests you, you can include that in the email too.
Why I am excited to be a part of WISER? It is an excellent way to meet people, network, explore career opportunities and gain leadership experience. [At my first event] I was met with a very friendly and welcoming group of people … I was impressed with how much I learnt.

As a local entrepreneur in the field of engineering and science, joining the WISER Network has been a very wise choice. The events organized by WISER provide excellent resources for budding professionals in technological fields and a dynamic networking environment. I have made wonderful contacts and been able to share my experiences as a mentor to talented, motivated students who are keen to make a difference.

Being a part of the WISER Mentor Network has been widely beneficial to me on a personal level. The opportunities to grow professionally, learn from the amazing women around me as well as share my knowledge has and will continue to have a strong impact throughout all stages of my career. This has only been possible through the strong support from industry, government and academia.
Shoma Sinha, PhD
WISER has widened my social network with practical and fun events, and boosted my confidence professionally. Now, I am a working professional, and I would like to help other young women to build their confidence and share my experience.
The WISER mentor network provided opportunities to interact with others from across industry, academia, and government. Those connections have been instrumental in informing my career path. Although I’ve now left Edmonton, the connections to many mentors and friends continue.

Evidence of the interest and value in WISER is its track record of holding regularly well-attended events (6-12 events) every year since inception, and attracting a full and engaged volunteer executive team which is committed to the principles of making a difference, and creating a better present and future for all.
