Women in Cognitive Science – Canada

Les Chercheuses en Sciences Cognitives – Canada

WiCS-Canada is the Canadian Chapter of Women in Cognitive Science (http://womenincogsci.org/), an NSF-funded organization in the U.S. affiliated with the Psychonomic Society. For over 15 years, 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.
