The Hub for Canadian Women in STEM



My name is Natalie Linklater

I am a tech educator

When I was 10 I wanted to be: nun, basketball player, pilot, dentist and academic.

I work as an Engineer, Researcher.

I am proud of the work that I do with CU-WISE . We’ve done countless outreach activities and programs to expose and encourage girls to pursue STEM fields through fund hands-on activities, special talks, panel discussions and offering mentoring opportunities for both high school and university students.

The biggest obstacle I have faced is struggling with my own self confidence; similarly to other women, I too succumb to the impostor syndrome. To overcome it, I think it’s important to celebrate your successes and those of other talented females. 

My advice to women is: you’re smart enough and you can do anything you set your mind to.
