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.”

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.”
