This virtual event gives first year female Engineering students the opportunity to meet and mingle with each other, upper level female students and female faculty!


The purpose of this online networking/team building event is to welcome & connect our first year female students with upper level students and female faculty members.  This is a great opportunity for new incoming students to talk to the upper level students & faculty and have them share their McMaster experiences, give advice and answer any questions you may have.

We will leverage the breakout room functionality of Zoom to allow opportunities for more intimate small group conversation and to facilitate discussions.

We hope to see you there at this extremely valuable event – Zoom Meeting link, Id and password will be shared with you a few days before the event.
