Dalhousie WiE International Women in Engineering Day Event

Jun 23, 2021 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM



Join us on International Women in Engineering Day, June 23rd from 6pm - 7:30pm ADT.


The Women in Engineering (WiE) Society is hosting an Engineering for Generations Speaker Series: Women of Today. This event will bring together youth, students, faculty, and alumni to explore how we change the perceptions of who engineers can be and what engineers can do.


What to expect:

In this one-of-a-kind virtual event, you will hear from three generations of incredible women in engineering: Denise Pothier is a phenomenal leader in the field of engineering; Sierra Sparks is an Engineer in Training, Rhodes Scholar, and an outstanding voice for young women in engineering; Lila Gechtman has shown an interest in STEM since an early age and is an incredible example of the next generation of women engineers. This will be a moderated session with the goal of having meaningful conversations around barriers women face in entering the profession historically dominated by men.


Why you should attend:

WIE hopes the session will help identify barriers that can help address and provide a forum for women to connect in a time when we are living so much of our lives disconnected from our communities.
