Women in Engineering Summit 2023 - Empowering Internationally Trained Professionals (ITPS) to Bridge the 30 by 30 Women in Engineering Gap

Women in Engineering Summit (WES) 2023 is very excited to be hosting the sixth annual Women in Engineering Summit (WES) on Friday, June 9th, 2023, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm MDT. You will have the opportunity of attending in person in Edmonton and Calgary, or online.


Come help us take a step towards realizing the goal of achieving inclusivity, diversity, and fairness by actively educating ourselves about the challenges and barriers faced by the minorities! Attending WES is the perfect way to network, share experiences and implement this understanding to positively influence the dynamics of our workplaces and communities, enriching engineering culture in Canada.


  • As an attendee: you will have the opportunity to network and connect with like-minded individuals and companies who share your values, culture, and have a meaningful impact by voicing your position on 30 by 30 and EDI in the workplace.
  • As a company: you will gain visibility as a promoter of equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) among students, practicing professionals, the community, potential partners / clients as well as regulators and other stakeholders.


WES 2023 has an incredible line-up of speakers who will empower underrepresented communities of engineering professionals such as:

  • Women, indigenous, and LGBTQIA2S+ by addressing unconscious bias, inclusion strategies, career planning, and mental well-being.
  • Internationally Trained Professionals (ITPs), who often must navigate a different culture and unwritten rules in the Canadian workplace.
