Our trainee committee is hard at work planning events for the first day of the conference. You can count on panels based around Science Communication, Women in Stem, Alternative Careers, and Networking. Watch this space for updates in the coming months.


We are collaborating with the Ottawa Science to Business Network to bring a resume workshop to our trainees. Students will workshop their own resumes and experiences into application ready resume sections.


We have invited panelists from a variety of careers to present their career paths and advice to our trainees. We are also inviting panelist to discuss work life balance in science and academia. Finally, we a putting together a science communication workshop for trainees to practice their elevator pitch and learn about effective communication strategies.


Trainee Organizing Committee: Sarah Laframboise, Hossein Davarinejad, Amanda Bentley-DeSousa, Liam McCarthy, Yidai Yang, and Elizabeth Walden.


We are looking forward to seeing you in Ottawa for the first day of events!
