Weizmann Canada presents

Weizmann Canada’s Women and Science Committee has been promoting and fostering women in science since 1988. For over a dozen years, the Committee hosted Wonderful Women, an elegant event series. The series is coming back, with a fresh perspective and the same focus of championing and empowering women in science!  

Our 2024 not-to-be-missed event focuses on the healing power of science, a conversation about life post-October 7 and how Weizmann and science is playing an integral role in the current war effort and in the eventual rebuilding of Israel.  

In the face of uncertainty, displacement, and the numerous other challenges our community faces during these difficult days, it is incumbent upon us that science education continues apace. That’s why the CEO of Weizmann’s Davidson Institute for Science Education, Dr. Liat Ben-David, will join us as a distinguished speaker. 

The event also features Sara Foster, who will discuss her rise in business (podcasting, fashion, acting). 

Fundraising efforts for this event will be directed to the wartime operations of the educational arm of the Weizmann Institute of Science — the Davidson Institute of Science Education. 

Since the crisis began, the Institute has spared no effort to provide the families displaced by the savage onslaught, some relief as they reel from these harrowing events in the communities. Davidson experts have developed and implemented numerous activities tailored for the evacuees―especially the children.
