ABOUT THIS EVENT
Join us for lunch and a panel exploring these questions:
- Why is better representation of gender diversity important in engineering and technology fields?
- Why are women underrepresented in engineering, and how does this intersect with under-representation of LGBTQ2+ engineers?
- Engineers Canada, along with many companies and post-secondary institutions, has published a plan and targets to help increase the number of women in engineering; what immediate steps should BCIT take to get on board?
