5th International Women in Physics Conference

I just came back from attending the 5th International Women in Physics Conference in Waterloo, ON.  The conference was sponsored by IUPAP (International Union of Pure and Applied Physics). It welcomed 215 attendees from 52 countries all across the world to discuss the issues related to women in physics. We had science talks, presentations about general issues, panels, discussions and most importantly lots of informal conversations. Wilfrid Laurier University hosted the event and the University of Waterloo and the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics supported it. I helped to organize Physics Education Research workshops and was part of a panel on various careers with physics degrees. It was a very exciting opportunity to represent Canada and to be a part of something very special.
