- 30 by 30 Panel -

The 30 by 30 Panel is held every year at WES, Women in Engineering Summit, to keep track of the progression of the 30 by 30 Initiative by Engineers Canada, which is a key strategy of WES. The 30 by 30 Initiative seeks to achieve the goal, by the year 2030, that 30% of newly licensed engineers and geoscientists in Canada will be female. According to the Engineers Canada website, the national number is 20.6 % as of December 31, 2020 (an increase of 2.7% since last year, yahoo!). These panelists represent engineering and geoscience regulators, academia, government and industry.
