    WISE has always been a support for women since it's inception. Often it is difficult to brave the world of work after being a stay at home Mom and even more so, if you are on the wrong side of 50. WISE welcomes women, offers a level of comfort that is easy to work with, supports your needs and is a shoulder to lean on when the going has been a bit rocky and you're not totally sure of where you want to go from where you are. Women supporting women in a non-threatening environment. WISE means Women Interested in Successful Employment. It's been working successfully for a lot of women over the past 20 years. Here's to a lot more of the same.

    Sounds like this program does good work. I'm just curious about the name. I had a few female friends who got work experience in high school that led them to a career choice in science in a program called WISE (Women In Science and Engineering). Is it wise to have two provinical programs with similar goals (ie improving the economic opportunities of our women) with the same name? Or is the WISE program I knew no longer around (if so, it would be a shame since I can think of at least one chemist who benefited from it).
