Annual conference held at Waterloo's Institute for Quantum Computing

It’s well-known that more diversity among scientists will mean better outcomes for society.

And while passion will ultimately help scientists who belong to a marginalized group, women and others will also need a strong support network, role models and a good relationship with an academic supervisor, according to female scientists who shared their experiences at the recent Women in Physics Canada (WIPC) conference held at Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing.
