Engineering Professional Success Pilot Mentorship Program for Women
Today, engineering remains a non-traditional career for women. Only 18% of graduates from Canadian engineering programs are female, and only 10% of P.Eng. licence holders in Ontario are women. As a result, interactions between young and experienced female professionals in the engineering space are hard to come by.
To address this, OSPE and PEO are partnering to create Engineering Professional Success — a two-year pilot mentorship program that will support women who are recent engineering graduates and in the early stages of their careers.
Mentor-protégée relationships will serve to address the individual needs of the protégée with a focus on any of the following areas:
- Steps to licensure and support with the process
- Career planning
- Enhancing professional networks to secure employment
- Negotiation skills
