MAY 9: WIE(VR) Presents An Engineer’s Journey

WIE Vancouver is delighted to have Catherine Roome, President and CEO of BC Safety Authority, as the distinguished speaker for our annual seminar series An Engineer’s Journey to be held at the SFU Harbour Centre, downtown on May 9, 2013 at 6 pm.

Admission is free but please let us know if you plan to attend so that we can arrange for refreshments! RSVP here.

For more information, click here or see the attached poster.


Catherine will share insider secrets about being a senior executive, woman, engineer (not necessarily in that order!) The path to career success is different for everyone, so this personal story will be about things that worked, or didn’t work and how taking risks and making mistakes were part of her path. She will also be fairly bossy about learning how to negotiate – so you’ll need to pay attention!  And finally, Catherine will share her reading list, and is looking forward to learning from those attending what they are currently reading and talking about.
