Make Possible is a mentoring network to advance women in STEM careers

Our Vision
A world where aspiration, opportunity and diversity intersect
Our Mission
Help women connect, collaborate and lead through a dedicated mentoring network in STEM

Make Possible was developed in 2014 by members of SCWIST (Society for Women in Science and Technology) with funding support from Status of Women Canada to attract, retain and advance women in science and technology.

Gender diversity research shows a variety of challenges facing women. In SCWIST surveys and industry research, women identified the lack of mentorship support as a major barrier to career advancement in these fields.

SCWIST recognized the need for a trusted support network to advance women in careers like science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Make Possible is a free online platform where people can mentor and be mentored, create networking connections, focus on professional development and achieve their career aspirations.
