The University of Waterloo is hosting the Excellence and Quality of Academic Life in STEM (EQUALS) conference this May 11-12, 2017 in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

EQUALS is a venue for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and young scholars considering an academic career in a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) field.  The purpose of this conference is to explore the spectrum of pathways of academic success in STEM with an explicit focus on gender equity and its intersections with other identity markers.

Participation is open to all genders and non-binary individuals, however, sessions will primarily focus on issues related to the under-representation of women-identifying aspiring scholars in the STEM fields, the associated challenges in academia, and identification of potential practical solutions and career advice for women. Everyone interested in these issues is welcome to attend. This will be a safe space for open discussion of identity-based challenges faced by those interested pursuing a career in academia in STEM fields.
Registration is now open! To register and for more information, please visit uwaterloo.ca/equals<https://uwaterloo.ca/excellence-quality-academic-life/>
