Women of Innovation Symposium
The project Women of Innovation aims to recognize and document the experiences and accomplishments of innovative Canadian female engineers and to disseminate their inspiring stories through a peer-reviewed publication and a symposium at a national conference. The innovation and influence of Canadian female engineers is still unrecorded. Through these oral history interviews, the publication of a manuscript, and the symposium, this project aims to build the collective and individual memories of women in engineering. By recovering and writing the stories of these women’s lives, this project will also pay tribute to the accomplishments of Canadian women in engineering; inspire current engineers to become innovators in their field; and provide girls and women with inspiring role models that could lead them to pursue careers in STEM.
