Women’s voices have always been powerful, relevant and necessary. Our rapidly changing world is creating new spaces and opportunities for these voices to have an impact.
Join us for a very special University of Waterloo 2021 International Women’s Day breakfast as we discuss how diversity and equity are critical to helping power shifts in science, technology, entrepreneurship, and social change.
