WISER (Women in Science, Engineering and Research) is a group comprised of volunteers dedicated to connecting professionals in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields. Though WISER is primarily geared towards women, men are also welcome at WISER activities. Past activities have included speed networking, panel discussions, barbecues, coffee nights and their annual golf tournament. The organization is affiliated with the University of Alberta and many of its events are on or around the university campus. There is also a WISER group on LinkedIn which I encourage you to join.
WISER is having a potluck meeting on Wednesday, September 1st, 2010 from 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm in the Heritage Lounge at Athabasca Hall which is located on the University of Alberta campus. The meeting is for those interested in joining the WISER executive team. The primary duties of the WISER executives are planning and organizing WISER events to be held throughout the coming year. For further information or to RSVP (don’t forget to bring a dish) please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
