SCWIST’s 26th Annual Wonder Women Networking Evening @ Science World at Telus World of Science
Mar 6 @ 5:15 pm – 9:30 pm

How to Survive and Thrive in Your Chosen Science and Technology Career.

The Society for Canadian Women in Science and Technology (SCWIST) and Science World are proud to present the annual Wonder Women Networking Evening. Participants meet amazing women with careers in science and engineering and learn more about their pathways. This event will be held under the geodesic dome and is a joint venture between Science World and SCWIST.

The Wonder Women Networking Evening is for everyone who identifies as a woman in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), interested in learning where your degree can take you. Undergraduate and graduate students will find the event particularly relevant. We also invite postdoctoral researchers and working professionals to sharpen your networking skills and connect with women who are as passionate about science, technology, and engineering as you are!

Join us for a lively evening of networking, food, and fun. Make new friends and find a mentor!

‘Best Advice I Ever Got: Life and Career Lessons’ with Jill Krop of Global BC @ DevHub
Mar 7 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Women’s Collective hosts successful leaders for speaker events aimed at mentoring and guidance for young women (and men) from diverse communities in Lower Mainland.

After three back-to-back sold out events, we thrilled to host Jill Krop, News Director & Station Manager at Global BC, in conversation with Chris Gailus, News Hour Anchor at Global BC News.

Trailblazing journalist, Jill Krop began her career in 1986 after graduating from BCIT. In early 2015, she was the first woman to be appointed to the role of News Director and Station Manager at Global BC, one of the most successful news operations in the country.

When not in the newsroom, Jill can be found out in the community supporting a number of local charities including the Coast Mental Health Foundation, and BC Sports Hall of Fame. She serves on the Board of Variety – The Children’s Charity, Burnaby General Hospital, and BC Children’s Hospital Foundation Marketing Board. The telethons for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation and Variety – The Children’s Charity air on Global BC and combined, raise more than $25 million every year for the community.

This event series is a volunteer-led, inclusive community initiative with all proceeds to women’s charities in British Columbia.

From Solopreneur to Boss: Creating Your Processes @ Free Teleconference
Mar 20 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
From Solopreneur to Boss: Creating Your Processes @ Free Teleconference

You’ve built your business out of passion and hard work, so you know it inside and out. But how can you boil it down to a set of processes that is easy for a new employee to understand?

You may think that hiring someone will solve your problem of having to work too much. Spoiler alert: This simply isn’t true.

While hiring staff may take some work off your plate, it will also add a new set of responsibilities in managing your team. So doing some prep work now will save you headaches down the road.

Join us on March 20 for the first in a two-part teleconference series to help you address the first stages of hiring for your business: creating processes and systems.

In this teleconference, we’ll discuss how you can:

  • Simplify your business and service offering
  • Define your customer avatar
  • Draft your initial core processes for serving your clients; and
  • Map out your customer journey

Facilitator: Kerrilee Auger, Skills Development Manager, Women’s Enterprise Centre

Panelists:

  • Sandra Graham
  • Danison Buan

All Systems Grow: Building Your Team @ Free Teleconference

This is the second in a two-part teleconference series on hiring for your business.

So, you’ve added a new member to your team. Now what?

Many business owners have some initial systems in place, but they need some guidance on where to further develop their systems in order to grow.

Join us on March 27 to zero in on the areas where you can bulk up your processes and procedures and set yourself up for growth.

This session is ideal if you are ready to hire an employee or virtual assistant, or recently added a new member to the team.

In this teleconference, we’ll discuss how you can:

  • Determine what you need in place to service 2-5 more customers
  • Leverage your systems, automation, processes and people
  • Define the role of your virtual assistant or employee

Facilitator: Kerrilee Auger, Skills Development Manager, Women’s Enterprise Centre
