Continuing to Lay the Foundation for Female Engineer Success

December 06, 2021
December 6th marks a significant day of remembrance for Canadians. On this day we reflect and express gratitude to the women who came before us and paved the way for women in engineering and other STEM careers. No sense of gratitude would be complete without acknowledging the obligation that we feel to future generations. It is because of the women before us and their perseverance that we are here today, doing what we love. Today, women make up about 22 percent of engineering undergraduates, according to Engineers Canada. Of licensed engineers in the country, women account for 13 percent. Since 2005, applications to Canada’s engineering schools have tripled, according to Ontario Network of Women in Engineering (ONWIE), showing that continued growth is encouraged by the development of an environment that promotes and supports diversity and inclusion.
