The 19th Biennial CCWESTT conference will be held May 12-14, 2022 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We are particularly excited to welcome attendees back to Halifax. It’s been 10 years since we hosted CCWESTT.
The theme of the 2022 conference is Reach for the Stars: Creating Impact Together. Our logo represents Bellatrix, the female warrior.
The conference highlights activities by member organizations, industry partners and government initiatives that are working towards a more diverse SETT workforce in Canada. This conference is open to all genders. With a vision of a Canadian SETT workforce that values diversity and inclusion and a mission to be a recognized leader for and a voice of a national community for women in SETT, CCWESTT builds alliances and partnerships which support and celebrate a diverse SETT workforce.
