About Us

Spread the love!

The idea for hosting the Women in Engineering Summit was born in 2016 when founder Claudia Gomez-Villeneuve, a pipeline engineer at the time, saw the challenges and the rewards for a woman engineer to stay in the profession. Then she learned of the 30 by 30 Initiative by Engineers Canada and saw the opportunity to create a space where experiences and practical solutions for staying in the profession from graduation until retirement could be shared. The 30 by 30 Initiative will help Canada achieve the key developmental target of having 30 percent of newly licensed engineers in Canada to identify as women.

Mission

Women in Engineering Summit is a non-profit group that aims to encourage women in engineering to pursue their professional registration. The goal will be achieved by addressing the most pressing issues facing women in engineering every year during the annual summit

Vision

Women represent a third of the Licensed Engineering population in Alberta, and are valued, respected and recognized for their contributions to the field. They remain in the profession until retirement, often becoming mentors and role models for young engineers.

Our Values

Transparency

WES believes in transparency at all levels in the organization. We strive to help others in their career paths, by being vulnerable and sharing the experiences and strategies that have helped us stay in the profession. We will not make flashy statements or pretend our paths have been harder or easier than they really are. And when providing advice, we speak our truth.

Empowerment

Mentors and coaches have guided us in our career paths and have provided opportunities for growth. We believe it is our responsibility to pay it forward, by creating those opportunities for people to grow and have a support network. We foster leadership by involving junior and senior engineers in the planning and delivery of the annual summits.

Fun

The diversity in thoughts that we embrace is a perfect environment for argument and discussion; things sometimes don’t turn out the way we planned them. When the going gets tough we rely on a positive attitude to keep us moving in the right direction.
