We are excited to host Toronto's sixth Soapbox Science event this year. The annual international public outreach event celebrates women and non-binary researchers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The Toronto organizers are excited to return to an in-person event this September, after holding Soapbox Science online for the past two years. This year coincides with FOS10, (opens in new window)  celebrating 10 years of discovery as the Faculty of Science at Toronto Metropolitan University.

This year's event will take place at the incredible outdoor area of Evergreen Brickworks (external link, opens in new window)  as part of Toronto's Word on the Street (external link, opens in new window)  festival. As always, the event is free and no registration is required.

In addition to Toronto, there will be events all across Canada including Hamilton, Ottawa, Quebec City, St. John’s, Vancouver and Winnipeg. Check out the Soapbox Science website (external link, opens in new window)  for more details about Canadian and International events.
