APEGA - Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
Women in APEGA Advisory Group
Are you a passionate engineer or geoscientist looking to create change? Are you a leader who wants to make sure there’s a seat at the table for everyone? Are you driven to build community and advance diversity and inclusion within the professions? Now’s your chance!
In 2011, APEGA established the Women in APEGA Working Group, later renamed to Women in APEGA Advisory Group, with the goal of increasing the representation of women in the professions to 30% by 2030 (30 by 30 goal). Over the past decade, the group has made significant contributions to this objective. Now we are looking for new voices.
