The Society of Women Engineers Toronto was built on the foundations of uniting womxn in engineering. As a community, we are in full support of the Black Lives Matter movement and do not tolerate any racial discrimination within our SWE Affiliate. We believe that staying silent on systemic racism is unacceptable.
As a SWE Affiliate, we are guided by the following diversity and inclusion principles as set out by SWE:
We are committed to standing together with the Black community and putting in the work to ensure we are living our principles while questioning the structures by which we are governed. We will be examining through an intersectional lens where we can do better, specifically for the Black community, both as a SWE Global Affiliate and in the larger SWE organization.
