Katelyn Stieva, a first year CMSS thesis-based student, attended the 2017 WIIS-Canada conference this past May in Montreal. The three-day event involved academics and practitioners from the fields of military studies and international security discussing issues and barriers facing women in these fields and highlighting the importance of women leaders, both current and moving forward. 

Katelyn presented research analyzing the biases that underpin Canadian Domestic and foreign policy regarding the Women, Peace, and Security agenda and offered suggestions as to how Canada could address these biases moving forward.
