Women in Cognitive Science – Canada / Les Chercheuses en Sciences Cognitives - Canada

WiCSC is the Canadian Chapter of Women in Cognitive Science (WiCSC – Women in Cognitive Science Canada), an NSF-funded organization in the U.S. affiliated with the Psychonomic Society. Heading into its 20th year in 2021, WiCS has offered important professional development and networking opportunities to women (and men) scientists in the fields of cognitive science, cognitive neuroscience, and related disciplines.  We hope WiCS-Canada will enable similar opportunities, in a way that is tailored to the Canadian research context. The official launch of WiCS-Canada occurred on June 2016 at the Meeting of CSBBCS, held at the University of Ottawa, thanks to seed funding from the NSERC Unique Initiatives Fund, and support from CSBBCS.

The WiCSC Trainee Board for graduate students and early-career researchers can be found at Trainee Board - WiCSC.
