Welcome to U of T Scientista!

Working Towards a Brighter Future for Women in STEM

The Scientista Foundation at U of T is one of 20+ campus affiliate organizations of Scientista National in North America. Our chapter aims to enrich the academic journey of women in post-secondary science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM), and promote a tight sense of community among the female science students at our vast university. Most importantly, we aim to provide valuable resources and support to aid our members in their future and current undertakings. This includes regular socials, study groups, and networking opportunities or guest lectures with successful women in STEMM - accomplished scientists who can offer insight into myriads of different fields and perspectives on challenges we may face as women in science. In short, Scientista offers a basis for women scientists to learn, share, and advance together.

“Don't let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity. It's your place in the world; it's your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live.”

Mae Jemison, first African American woman astronaut in space
