Soapbox Science Toronto

We are delighted to apply our passion for science outreach to Soapbox Science. As a group, we share a fundamental belief that diversifying science contributes to better science, better decision-making and better opportunities for everyone. By giving our fabulous Soapbox Scientists a platform to share their knowledge with the public, we are building a more accessible and inclusive science community.

Soapbox Science Toronto was the first event in North America and past Soapbox Speakers have hailed from Toronto, Guelph, London (Ontario) and Winnipeg and our events have featured some of the top scientists engaged in science outreach and diversity initiatives in Canada.
