2011 was the 100th anniversary of the awarding of the Nobel prize in chemistry to Marie Curie. Women have made incredible advances over the past hundred years; in 1911 women in Canada could not vote and were not even recognized as persons. But new challenges face women today – there is a critical need to continue to address barriers to women in science, engineering and quantitative social sciences. Laurier is proud to champion women in sciences through the Centre for Women in Science. Indeed, our ultimate goal is to make this Centre redundant. With your help and support, we know we can.
