Greater impact with the help of many

As a mathematics and computer science powerhouse and Canada’s most innovative university, Waterloo is uniquely positioned to break down barriers for women and other underrepresented genders in STEM.

With the help of our alumni, allies, faculty and staff, the Waterloo Women’s Impact Network (WWIN) is focusing on three crucial areas: early outreach, current student supports, and innovation. All giving received through this network will support these key areas. Of the total raised, 30% is provided to each of our campus partners and 10% is held back to support unique projects submitted by our campus community and voted on by our WWIN members.
