Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
The McMaster Women in Engineering Society is thrilled to announce the addition of a new initiative, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI). This has always been the foundation of our society; however, we are now making it a pillar of our society in order to create initiatives and dedicated events. We strive to create a space for female-identifying students to feel supported throughout their education. However, to promote more diversity and inclusion within our society, we have teamed up with other diversity-based clubs such as EngiQueers, and the National Society of Black Engineers to expand our reach across the Faculty of Engineering. The collaboration between these clubs is to host a conference encompassing concepts of equity, diversity, inclusion, allyship, and intersectionality. This event is meant to educate and promote a sense of community. Additionally, throughout the year, the McMaster WIE will be hosting a series of workshops and seminars to discuss important topics such as microaggressions, how to succeed as a minority, intersectionality, and many more!
