Engineers Canada Women in Engineering
Engineers Canada has created the 30 by 30 initiate, a national program with the goal of raising the percentage of women who are newly licensed engineers to 30% by the year 2030. Thirty per cent is universally held as the tipping point for sustainable change—reaching 30 by 30 will help drive the shift in the overall membership of the engineering profession as more and more women continue to enter the profession.
Engineers Canada has long fostered collaboration with engineering regulators and other engineering stakeholders to work collectively and share authority, decision-making, and accountability to reach 30 by 30. Engineers Canada facilitates the work of the 30 by 30 Champions network, facilitates data collection and distribution on the composition of the profession, and advocates to the federal government on issues relevant to women in engineering. The program focuses on barriers to entry and retention for women in the profession.
