Volunteering with WCE is important to me because I want to be a part of creating a community for women to support each other throughout their careers!

Shobi Sivapalan, EIT, Horizon Engineering

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!

Chazel Solamo, EIT, Onsite Engineering Ltd.

“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. “
