In an effort to support the continuing growth and advancement of women in the professions, the APEGBC Vancouver Branch is partnering with the Division for the Advancement of Women in Engineering & Geoscience (DAWEG) to co-host a seminar to foster greater discussion on issues that are important to female professionals and students working in or entering the professions. The discussions will include:

  • How could women build on their skills to further level the playing field with their male colleagues during interviews, salary negotiations and building a case for promotions?
  • How are men and women working together to bridge the gender gap in the workplace?
  • How could women overcome obstacles which are making it difficult for them to enter or stay in engineering and geoscience?
  • What could organizations and managers/ supervisors/ employees (both female and male) do to support their female colleagues in career advancement and achieving work-life balance?

This event will consist of a panel discussion with a wide range of guest panelists, including male and female professionals in VP positions, hiring managers, entrepreneurs, and female P.Eng. and P.Geo. with family commitments in an effort to offer a range of perspectives in the discussion.
