LINKS Program Registration

Feb 22, 2024 - Mar 15, 2024

Engineers Nova Scotia’s Women in Engineering (WIE) Committee is excited to announce that registration has opened for another year of our conversation-based mentorship and peer support program called LINKS (Learning through Interacting, Networking, and Knowledge Sharing).

The purpose of the LINKS Program is to support the objective of improving the retention of under-represented groups in the engineering profession. LINKS helps facilitate this by connecting engineers across the province to foster relationships and increase the sense of welcoming and belonging in the profession. The pilot year of the program saw great success, with over 100 participants. We hope to see the level of excitement and engagement with the program grow for years to come.

The vision for LINKS was based on the belief that we all have something that we can learn from each other. Each LINKS group will meet once per month and consist of 3-5 engineers/engineers-in-training who self-identify as women. Group members participate in discussions around selected topics and have the opportunity to hear and share opinions and advice related to that theme. Each LINKS meeting is an opportunity to have meaningful discussions and collaborate with others while supporting the professional development of participants.

The commitment required by LINKS participants is one hour per month for a virtual meeting over the course of one year. Each LINKS participant is expected to treat every member of their group fairly and with respect and keep all content of the conversations private. By registering for the program, participants acknowledge their responsibility and commitment to participating in group discussions and assisting with meeting coordination.
