Teachers and Parents

It can be daunting for young women and non-binary students to pursue a career in STEM fields where they may not see themselves represented. WISEST offers opportunities for your students to see how they might find their place in a STEM field. Teachers and parents play a crucial role in empowering students to pursue these less conventional paths, and WISEST wants to support you in this endeavour.

Help encourage your students to explore an education or career path in STEM with supports from WISEST and opportunities through school partnerships.

The WISEST STEM podcast is all about advancing the conversation around diversity and inclusion in science, engineering and technology. We talk to academics, industry professionals, graduate students, undergraduate students and high school students on a wide variety of topics revolving around equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in STEM such as allyship and mentorship!

This podcast aims to engage junior high to high school-aged students. Parents and teachers are invited to utilize this as a resource and opportunity to encourage their students to think about these topics and to dive deeper into the subject matter.
