OSPE is committed to supporting diversity and inclusion in engineering. In 2017, we established a pilot mentorship program funded by Status of Women Canada. The results of this pilot demonstrated that a formal mentorship program is essential to achieving a more diverse engineering profession.
Thanks to the generous support of Hydro One and Transport Canada, OSPE’s Engineering Mentorship Program has become a permanent offering for OSPE members who want to obtain their license, and it is a valued benefit of membership for mentors and mentees alike.
Mentors provide support to recent engineering graduates in four key areas:
- Obtaining licensure
- Career planning
- Enhancing professional networks
Interested in joining the program?
OSPE uses MentorCity, an online platform to connect you to meaningful mentoring relationships.
