BioTalent Canada is collaborating with the Canadian Society of Women in Science and Technology (SCWIST) to allow us to join their online mentoring site – Make Possible. Aside from future local chapter events co-organized by PEI BioAlliance and BioTalent Canada, this online tool is a great way for us to connect on a virtual mentorship platform at any time.
The Canadian Society of Women in Science and Technology, SCWIST, is a professional network founded 35 year ago and promotes, encourages and empowers women and girls in science, engineering and technology. SCWIST is located in Vancouver, BC; however, it recently launched the Make Possible virtual mentorship platform nationwide with funding through Status of Women Canada.
Make Possible is a free mentoring network to advance professionals with careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) virtually or in person. This online platform allows women to become a mentor, mentee or both with other professionals across Canada. In addition to its focus on mentorship, Make Possible is an excellent tool to create valuable network connections and access best practices to help Canadian women achieve their career aspirations.
In the upcoming months, Make Possible will have a “Groups” feature that will allow us to set up a BioTalent Canada group. We will let you know when that advanced feature is available. Take the site for a test run and give us your feedback.
