2019-2020 EDI Workshop Series
The Faculty of Engineering, co-led by Dr. Pooneh Maghoul, is organizing a series of interactive workshops in the 2019/2020 academic year to Engineering faculty members, staff, and student leaders. The workshops are part of a strategy to increase Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) knowledge in the Faculty of Engineering and promote the retention of women in the engineering profession in accordance with Engineers Canada’s30 by 30 initiative, which is adopted-in-principle in Manitoba by the engineering profession. The workshops will continue to move engineering culture toward a greater understanding of EDI. These activities will focus on developing a stronger core understanding among faculty staff members of equity, diversity, and inclusion as related but distinct ideas, and how they play out in our Faculty.
