A University of Ottawa-based research team is conducting a pan-Canadian study on the perceived role of engineering for and by women in society.

Le génie au service des femmes : Rethinking the Faces and Spaces of Engineering, a University of Ottawa-based research team, is conducting a pan-Canadian study funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada to investigate the perceived role of engineering for women and by women in society. To obtain a balanced perspective, the study requires input from diverse individuals.

As a participant in this study, you will be asked to participate in a questionnaire that will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. The questionnaire can be accessed here

Any individual (female, male, non-binary, etc.) associated with the practice of engineering is eligible to participate in the study (e.g., individuals studying, teaching or in an administrative role in engineering at a Canadian institution of higher education, engineers working in the public or private sector, engineering assistants, engineering technicians, etc.). If you are no longer studying or working in the field of engineering but were previously, your participation would still be welcome.

Your input is very important to the study and to the future of engineering in Canada so the team hopes you will consider sharing your views with them.
