Diversity & Inclusion
Stereotypes, bias and discrimination continue to impact the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) sector’s ability to attract and retain diverse talent. This has a negative impact on Canada’s success and competitiveness and is ultimately hindering economic growth and innovation.
The engineering profession must become more diverse and inclusive in order to thrive. Engineers can have a larger impact by embracing all aspects of diversity dimensions, including gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, ability, geographic location and engineering discipline.
