Chairs for Women in Science and Engineering Program

The Chairs for Women in Science and Engineering (CWSE) is a program launched in 1996 by NSERC, in response to a need for greater diversity and inclusion within the sciences and engineering.

The goal of the NSERC CWSE program is“to increase the participation of women in science and engineering, and to provide role models for women active in, and considering, careers in these fields.” Additional information about the program can be found here.
