Dalhousie's Faculties of Computer Science, Engineering and Science present the fourth annual Women in STEM Alumni Networking Event. This year's event will feature four leaders from the Dalhousie community, each representing a unique field in science, technology, mathematics and engineering (STEM). This year's discussion will focus on the challenges and opportunities of work-life balance and how women in STEM-related fields are living in a hybrid world and adapting to the 'new normal.'

Guest Speakers:
