Elizabeth Pietrantonio, BASc, P.Eng., EMBA, MTS
Elizabeth has held senior roles in global corporations in engineering management. A passion for lifelong learning took her back to academics where she began as a mathematics college professor, retiring as the Associate Dean of Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology eleven years later.
Elizabeth has sat on a number of boards and committees including OACETT, Women in Science and Engineering, the College Board of Governors and the Halton Canadian Mental Health Association. She is currently a member of the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers’ Women Engineer Advocacy Champions Task Force – WE ACT.
Having spent a career in engineering and technology in both global industry and academics, Elizabeth is now pursuing her passion to engage young women into STEM. Her six small grandchildren have reminded her of the joy of storytelling which Elizabeth combined with her passion for STEM to write The Case of the Robot Sabotage, the first in the Stella Hudson High series. Elizabeth believes that “You cannot be what you don’t know” and as a result, wrote the book to help young girls understand STEM in their own world.
