Weizmann Canada’s Wonderful Women Event
The fourth annual Wonderful Women event was organized by Weizmann Canada’s Women and Science committee. Held at Toronto’s historic Casa Loma, about 300 attendees enjoyed dinner and a panel discussion hosted by CBC News Network host Carole MacNeil. The panelists included innovative entrepreneur and humanitarian, Joey Adler; Editor-in-Chief of Zoomer magazine, Suzanne Boyd; actress and musician, Louise Pitre; and from the department of structural biology at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Dr. Rina Rosenzweig. These fascinating women shared inspirational stories of the successes and challenges throughout their careers. Funds raised from the event went to support four awards for female scientists in Israel who will be pursuing their post-doctoral research abroad.
