Currently in its 20th year, Tourism Vancouver’s Be a Host program has seen over 1,200 local hosts bring their meetings, conferences, congresses and symposiums to Vancouver. We’re proud to have supported some of Canada’s most influential researchers, industry leaders and innovative thinkers in bringing their colleagues to meet in our city, shining the spotlight on locally-led research and academic advancements.

Many of these local experts stem from UBC and we’re honoured to share this special anniversary year with them as they head into their 100th year. A pillar in our academic community and one that has supported a century of global citizenship, sustainability and research excellence, UBC is a key contributor to the Vancouver knowledge economy. 

In honour of UBC’s milestone anniversary, The University of British Columbia (UBC) and the UBC National Core for Neuroethics are hosting a community event celebrating 100 years of women in science and engineering (WISE), with a focus on bridging the past with the future.

The 100 Years WISE all-ages public event will provide an opportunity for the local and international academic and public community to engage in powerful dialogue around empowered leadership, diversity and the next 100 years.

Congratulations UBC! #UBC100WISE
