The Women in Engineering Summit (WES) team is hosting its sixth annual event and we are looking for sponsors to help us fund our hybrid event. Thanks to the support of sponsors like you, over the past 5 years our non-profit organization has reached over 750 engineering students and professionals with solutions to encourage women’s career satisfaction and professional registration, goals in alignment with Engineers Canada 30 by 30 Initiative, which aims to increase the number of newly licensed professional women in Engineering to 30% by 2030.
WES 2023 has an incredible line-up of speakers who will empower underrepresented communities of engineering professionals such as women, indigenous, and LGBTQ+ by addressing unconscious bias, inclusion strategies, career planning, mental wellbeing. Attendees can participate online or in person (Edmonton and Calgary) on June 9th, 2023, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm MDT.
This event would not be possible without the hard work of our volunteers, and your support. As a sponsor, your company will gain visibility as a promoter of equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) among students, practicing professionals, the community, potential partners / clients as well as regulators and other stakeholders. You will have the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and companies who share your values, culture, and voice your position on 30 by 30 and EDI in the workplace.
