“I Move for Immigrant Women in Science” 2021

September 18 - 19, 2021

Event Navigation

i move for immigrant women in science

To say bye to the hot summer and welcome the Fall season, IWS is organizing a virtual fundraising campaign, ‘I move for Immigrant Women in Science’ that will take place from September 18th to 26th.

The IWS network has always been the torchbearer to build a collaborative network that supports and promotes equity, diversity, and inclusion of Immigrant and International Women from STEM backgrounds in Canada.

The event offers the opportunity for everyone to participate across Canada in their comfort zone. Over a week, participants can choose any mode of motion as they wish. You can skip, hop, run, jog, bike or even row! Activity and distance is yours to choose.

Participants will need to register and purchase tickets through Eventbrite. Tickets may be purchased for $5, $10, $15, $20 and $25. Please do note that the distance you ‘move’ is equivalent to the ticket purchased. For example, if you decide to move 10kms, you are buying a ticket for $10.

The funds raised will help us to support our operations, outreach, and develop new programs. Any small help can make a big difference!

Are you ready to take up the challenge to support the future of immigrant women in STEM?

Once you are registered through Eventbrite, you will receive an order confirmation. Please note that this is not a competition and we will not have any rankings.

Everybody will be acknowledged on our Social Media platforms (Twitter, Linked In, Facebook). Thus, as soon as you complete your ‘move’, email us a picture/selfie or screenshot from your device at:, or you can post a picture/selfie on Social Media channels and tag us! (Optional).

“Let’s Move Together to Support Each Other” for IWS! Everybody is welcome to join!
