WHAT IS WIPC 2020?

Women in Physics Canada

[vc_empty_space height=”25px”][vc_column_text]

This is a nation-wide meeting aimed at increasing the representation of women and underrepresented groups in Physics (and STEM more generally). The main purpose of this annual meeting has been to support and encourage young female physicists at the early career stages of their career.

We value diversity and inclusion and aim to create a space where participants can build networks, explore career paths, and present research, while also promoting gender equity and taking part in conversations about women and underrepresented groups in physics, mental health, and LGBTQ2+ issues. While the conference is aimed primarily at graduate students in physics and astronomy, the approximately 100-150 participants typically also include undergraduate students, postdoctoral researchers, faculty members and professionals from the private sector working in fields related to physics.

WIPC 2020 will be held at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg. This marks the first time WIPC has been held in the province of Manitoba and coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Faculty of Science at the University of Manitoba – extra reasons to make this year’s conference better than ever! With that in mind, we are extremely excited to announce our WIPC 2020 keynote speaker, Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell.

Jocelyn Bell Burnell discovered pulsars during her PhD work in 1967 at the University of Cambridge. In 2018, she was awarded the Special Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics, valued at 3 million dollars. She donated the entire prize money to start a scholarship fund aimed at keeping under-represented groups, including women, in physics research. These scholarships for doctoral study in physics will be administered by the United Kingdom’s Institute of Physics, of which Bell Burnell was the first female president in 2008-10.

Support a diverse and inclusive environment - promote performance, creativity, innovation, and success!

Why your support is important

[vc_empty_space height=”15px”][vc_column_text]

Numerous studies demonstrate that diverse and inclusive environments promote performance, creativity, innovation, and success. Despite this, the fields of science and technology continue to suffer from a lack of diversity. WIPC 2020 aims to foster a sense of community and belonging among participants, so that people of all gender identities are supported in the early stages of their career to persist in physics and physics related careers. However, we need you to help make this happen! With your partnership, we will host a successful event that fosters new connections and promotes diversity in the field of physics and in Canada’s technology industries.

Be a partner for success!

Reach the next generation of data scientists, programmers, and researchers today!
