Brunch with Industry


Brunch with Industry is an event to bring together engineering and science students with successful professional women in these fields. The event will consist of keynote speakers and a delicious brunch. The speakers will share their experiences and give advice, allowing students to gain insight on opportunities and roles of women in this industry.


WiSE’s 4th annual Brunch with Industry was held Saturday, November 9th at the University Club in Kingston. Following our theme of crossroads, we heard from four amazing speakers who shared moments in their life when they reached a crossroad, how they chose one path over the other, and how their decision impacted their life and career. Thanks to all who contributed and helped make this event such a huge success!
