Covid-19 Update

Dear Queen's Community

In light of recommendations from Canada’s top health officials, Queen’s has made the difficult decision to deliver all undergraduate programs remotely for the fall term. With thousands of students and faculty affected by this change, Queen’s took the necessary steps to prioritize the health of our community in these unprecedented circumstances. 

Unfortunately, with these changes in the fall-term, WiSE will be moving all of our events, outreach programs, and socials to online platforms. We are saddened to lose the opportunities to connect with all of you at our Brunch with Industry, fall EngSci Day, and other in-person initiatives, but we will continue to remain active and share these events with members of the Queen’s and Kingston community who look forward to them every year.

Queen’s WiSE has been a voice for women in STEM in our community for three decades, and we will continue to bring that positive and encouraging environment this fall semester. This summer, we will be starting our “WiSE Wednesdays” initiative, which highlights prominent women in STEM who have blazed trails and inspired women across the globe. To begin our series, we will be showcasing women across many fields who have worked tirelessly to combat COVID-19 and the devastating effects it has had in countries across the globe. WiSE aims to highlight their efforts as a small token of gratitude for the incredible importance of their efforts thus far.

Please make sure to follow our Facebook page and Instagram (@queenswise) to remain up-to-date on our events and check out this website for more information on our club and the work we do. If you have any questions or comments on how we move forward with virtual events or any other concern, please feel free to contact us at wise@engsoc.queensu.ca. 

Stay safe and healthy,

WiSE
