Our Team

Emilie Lam

Co-President

Hi! I'm Emilie and I'm in my 4th year of Electrical Engineering & iBioMed. I am so grateful and excited to be apart of the exec team again this year, as Co-President with Jessica! I joined WIE because I think it's a really important group at Mac. Engineers help to shape and create the world we live in; therefore it is crucial that women are not only apart of this conversation, but directly leading and managing these new solutions. This year I hope to support the exec team in all their initiatives, which empower the women in our faculty and grow the percentage of women in this field!

Jessica Radko

Co-President

Hi! I'm Jessica and I am in my fifth and final year of Mechanical Engineering & Management. I am very honoured and excited to be Co-President this year alongside Emilie. I hope to empower members of our society, just as my incredible female role models inspire me to continue to pursue my career, even through adversity. This year is a new challenge for all of us but one that is not diminishing our determination to achieve our goals. I am proud to be leading such a dedicated group of women who are continuing to drive this society and innovate new ways to inspire, support and mentor the next generation of women in engineering.

Khadija Shahzad

Diversity Chair

Hi! I'm Khadija and I am in my second year of Computer Engineering. I am so excited to be a returning executive member with hopes of increasing inclusion and diversity in this society. I will be working alongside other engineering societies to plan and host a variety of events from formal dinners to casual hangouts. I joined WIE for a sole purpose, to help create a fun and welcoming community for female engineers. We have some great plans for this year, so stayed tuned. I hope to meet all of you throughout the year!

Rebecca Di Vincenzo

Co-VP Finance

Hi! I'm Rebecca, and I will be one of the 2020 vice-presidents of finance and administration! This is my second year on the WIE executive, and I'm super excited! I love what our exec stands for, and the positive environment it has allowed me to be a part of. I am in computer engineering, and love anything software related. Aside from engineering, I love music and spending time with my big family and wonderful friends! This year, I hope to manage our budget in a way that will allow us to have big events with fun activities and great networking opportunities. Whether it be decorating cookies or attending nation-wide conferences, I intend to use our funding to strengthen the female community at McMaster, and give female engineering students the confidence to continue studying what they love!

Sarah Woods

Co-VP Mentorship

Hi! I'm Sarah, and I'm very excited to be joining the WIE executive team again this year, especially as CO-VP of Mentorship with Shayna Earle. I am thrilled to be a part of such an awesome network of women. Engineering is tough, and first year can be daunting, but that is where a mentor can be so beneficial. Mentorship programs helped me throughout my first year, I was able to ask questions and gain insight from someone who has been through it all before. As CO-VP of Mentorship, my goal is to organize mentorship opportunities between incoming and upper year students to help them successfully navigate their way through their first year of engineering at McMaster while being inspired by strong female leaders within the WIE community. I look forward to meeting you all this year!
