Welcome to the Vancouver Pod of 500 Women Scientists.

The mission of 500 Women Scientists is to serve society by making science open, inclusive, and accessible. To achieve that mission we: empower women to grow to their full potential in science; increase scientific literacy through public engagement; and advocate for science and equality. Check out the 500 Women Scientists pledge that sparked an international movement.

The Vancouver pod focuses on engaging our community, changing the narrative of success as a scientist, and empowering women scientists through advancement and leadership.
