Outreach Committee

The of goal WCE’s Outreach Committee is to increase the visibility, enrollment, and participation of minorities in our industry by planning and participating in outreach events. The WCE Outreach Committee works directly with the Outreach Director, meets virtually once a month to review the Outreach workplan, coordinate and plan for upcoming events, and discuss new potential events to participate in. Depending on the event, additional time is spent preparing for Outreach events such as contacting partner organizations, coordinating volunteers, obtaining materials, and participating in the event day. Outreach events occur approximately once every two months and vary in level of effort and organization.

Volunteering as a member of WCE’s Outreach Committee includes more involvement than participating as a casual volunteer at Outreach events. Both are integral to the success of our Outreach efforts. For more information, please contact outreach@wcevancouver.com.

I don’t think I ever truly felt the lack of women around me until I entered the workforce. I love that WCE brings together women in consulting engineering and promotes diversifying our industry!

Tahmineh (Tach), Architectural Engineering, BCIT

“For me, it is about creativity, lifelong learning, and growth. We support and cheer one another on, much as a team would. The WCE is a welcoming and inspiring environment—one that pushes us all to do good.”

Website Committee

Chazel Solamo, EIT, Allnorth Consultants

“I often find myself as the only woman in the room in my line of work, and it can be daunting for someone who’s just started their career in engineering. Volunteering with WCE reminds me that there is a tight-knit community of awesome women who do the same things I do, and that inspires me to aim higher and keep representing!”

Lulu Zhang, EIT, BGC Engineering

“I want to volunteer with WCE to support, learn from, and connect with other female engineers.”
