Engineering Equality, Health and Well-Being

In cooperation with Professor Toni Schmader, CRC Chair, and Ph.D. Candidate William Hall from the UBC Department of Psychology, WWEST is investigating stress in engineering and science workplaces including some of our Chair industry partners.

The Health and Well-being in the Workplace project examines two key aspects of how a workplace might counteract daily stress and contribute to your health and well-being: the policies that promote a safe, rewarding, and inclusive environment and the interactions you have with others during your day.
