THE WOMEN & GIRLS IN SCIENCE CONFERENCE
In celebration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, Champions of Change is hosting two virtual conferences, running from 6:00-8:30pm on February 10th and 11th, 2021.
What is this conference?
The conferences feature a variety of female speakers from Western University, who will lead participants in exciting activities in the field of STEM. We will also get the opportunity to hear about each speaker’s personal journey in STEM and how they got to where they are today. Following this there will be a live Q&A session where participants will be able to ask the professors any questions they have.
The conferences will be open to girls ages 12-17, giving them the chance to network with experienced professionals in the field of STEM. We hope this will inspire girls who are interested in science and show them just how much they can accomplish if they put their minds to it.
Designed to give participants an idea of what different fields of science are like, and to get participants thinking about potential career paths that may spark their interest.
In December Champions of Change made and donated over 700 cookies for Sanctuary London's Christmas Dinner. These cookies helped provide a bit of happiness in the lives of those battling poverty over the holidays. Additionally, the members of Champions of Change launched the Positivitea initiative where we delivered messages of hope and kindness to the Salvation Army to be handed out with gift cards to those in need. To learn more about these initiatives and other past initiatives check out out Past Initiatives page!
Together We Can Make a Difference!
All the members at Champions of Change would like to say huge thank you for the generosity of everyone who took part in the Purple Box Campaign! We would also like to mention the Rising Youth Community Grant Service which is a Canadian service that provides youth with the opportunity to launch their own community based projects. The Rising Youth Grant Service provides funding at three different levels: $250, $750, and $1,500, allowing inspired individuals to see their ideas come to life! The funding provided by this organization was a huge help towards the Purple Box Care Package initiative.
