2021 Essay Contest – Why do I want to obtain my License as P.Eng. or P.Geo.?
The Women in Engineering Summit was born in 2016 when founder Claudia Gomez-Villeneuve, a pipeline engineer at the time, saw the challenges and rewards for a woman engineer to stay in the profession. When Claudia learned of the 30 by 30 Initiative by Engineers Canada, she saw an opportunity to create a space where experiences and practical solutions for staying in the profession from graduation until retirement could be shared.
This 30 by 30 Initiative, first conceived by the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) in 2010, was adopted by Engineers Canada as the national goal of raising the percentage of newly-licensed engineers and geoscientists who are women, to 30 per cent 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.
For your essay to be considered, authors must identify as female, be legal residents of Canada, and include proof of payment of their P.Eng. or P.Geo. license application fee to a provincial engineering regulator, during the contest period. Note the contest period means to include registrations made from before marketing for the contest began. The prizes will serve as financial aid for people who already paid for the license application. Note that earning the P.Eng. or P.Geo. license during the contest period is not a requirement to enter the essay competition.
Contest Period: May 1st, 2021 to May 1st, 2022
Submission Deadline: May 1st, 2022 by 11:59pm MST
