IMMIGRANT & INTERNATIONAL WOMEN IN SCIENCE (IWS)
The IWS Network aims to build a collaborative environment for Immigrant and International Women in Science that promotes equity, diversity, and inclusion in Canada. STEMPacts is working with STEM professionals in the IWS network to serve as mentors for the youth at MOSAIC who will participate in our programs and to inspire them with visible representation of immigrant women pursuing STEM careers.
UBC CENTRE FOR COMMUNITY ENGAGED LEARNING (CCEL)
STEMPacts has obtained funding for our programs from the Chapman and Innovation Grant set up by the CCEL department at the University of British Columbia. This grant offers UBC students the opportunity to create and carry out a meaningful project in partnership with a local not-for-profit community organization.
MOSAIC is one of the largest settlement non-profit organizations in Canada serving immigrant, refugee, migrant and mainstream communities. Their mission is to further the success and sense of belonging of newcomers and individuals from diverse backgrounds through advocacy and services, which include services pertaining to employment, language, counseling, and settlement. One of their many services includes working with children and youth through educational and social programs. STEMPacts is supporting these very children and youth by motivating and inspiring them to nurture their interests in STEM.
NATURAL SCIENCES AND ENGINEERING RESEARCH COUNCIL OF CANADA
STEMPacts has obtained funding for our programs from the NSERC Student Ambassadors initiative. This program was set up to support the promotion of STEM to under-represented and disadvantaged Canadian youth as part of helping foster a science and engineering culture in Canada.
