- The 30 per cent figure is widely accepted as the threshold for self-sustaining change and the engineering profession can achieve 30 by 30 through working together towards the same goal.
- Women make up more than half of the Canadian population but are significantly underrepresented in the engineering profession; less than 12 per cent of practicing licensed engineers are women.
- One of Engineers Canada’s core objectives is to achieve sustainable membership of the 12 provincial and territorial engineering regulators that is reflective of Canadian demographics. 30 by 30 is a key component of meeting this objective.
- Engineers Canada and the provincial and territorial engineering regulators are dedicated to enhancing gender diversity in the engineering profession. Diversity has proven value in the workplace for innovation, creativity and economic competitiveness in a global economy.
The programming brought to you by SWE TO aims to contribute to the retention of women with engineering degrees in the engineering profession and connecting early career new graduates and Engineering Interns (EITs) with Professional Engineers. Through Eng-Style Connecting, we encourage Professional Engineers to share their stories and career trajectory with the goal of inspiring early-career graduates to pursue their license. Through Coffee Club, our goal is to support women in the engineering field by promoting discussions about barriers to success in the field. Women participating in Coffee Club are supportive mentors, providing each other solutions to these barriers. These discussions are uplifting and promote leadership and confidence in the participants and aims to increase retention of women in the engineering field.
