WISEST is proud to host the Dr. Margaret-Ann Armour Memorial Event - sponsored by Shell, at the Telus World of Science in Edmonton on June 4, 2020. Dr. Armour passed away in early 2019, leaving an incredible legacy behind that we are proud to continue in her absence. She was the founding co-chair of WISEST (Women in Scholarship, Engineering, Science and Technology), an organization that has promoted inclusion and diversity within the sciences for over 30 years. She was a guiding light and fervent supporter of women and girls in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), influencing countless people with her quiet humility and sincere interest in others. She often encouraged us to dream big and to "do science as if people mattered", leaving a lasting impact everywhere she went. 

This event aims to celebrate the life and accomplishments of Dr. Armour, with a focus on her greatest passion: science. The event will begin at 6:00pm, with a formal presentation at 7:00pm. Finger food and drinks will be provided, and there will be hands-on activities for guest participation during the event. 

Edmonton-based artist Amy Dixon will be commissioning a special piece of artwork at the event to honour Dr. Armour and her incredible legacyPrints of this exclusive memorial artwork will be available for purchase, with profits donated to WISEST.

Please join us in celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Margaret-Ann Armour on June 4. We look forward to seeing you there!
