Registration is open for the 2024 30 by 30 Conference: Turning Knowledge into Action for Gender Equity in Engineering. The conference kicks off on April 24, 2024, with a virtual fireside chat and interactive workshop about creating equitable engineering workplaces.

Tickets for the three-hour virtual event cost only $50, and engineers may be eligible to claim continuing professional development (CPD) hours for attending. Check with your regulator for more information.

The virtual fireside chat features John Gamble, President and CEO of the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies (ACEC) – Canada, in conversation with Jeanette Southwood, Engineers Canada’s Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Strategic Partnerships. They’ll explore the progress engineering workplaces have made in welcoming and including people of various social identities and positionalities in the engineering profession over the last five years.

The fireside chat will be followed by an interactive workshop led by QuakeLab, an equity and justice agency. QuakeLab’s Founder and CEO, Sharon Nyangweso, will lead participants in exploring how we all can support more equitable workplaces and the actions we can take both individually and collectively to move the needle on gender equity in engineering.

The 2024 30 by 30 Conference will continue on May 22, 2024, in Winnipeg, MB, with a day-long, in-person Summit. Tickets for the in-person event cost $150, with group discounts available. Engineers again can be eligible to claim CPD hours and should check with their regulator for more information.

The in-person Summit brings together leaders from engineering workplaces, engineering educators, the engineering regulators, and others to discuss what we’ve learned over the past five years. Then together we’ll explore how our work and approaches to achieving gender equity within engineering have evolved, the current state, and what strategies and opportunities we’ll need to adopt if we hope to meet our 2030 target as well as retain newly licensed engineers in the profession, and champion a more diverse, inclusive, and welcoming engineering profession.

Register today to secure your spot at both the virtual and in-person event.
