Join the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) on Wed., Oct. 10th at the Shaw Centre for It’s Time WE Act.

Now in its 16th year, this annual forum is OSPE’s signature event and the province’s most significant gathering for women in engineering and advocates for diversity in STEM.

For the first time ever, the conference will be held in our nation’s capital — a city boasting the largest concentration of engineers and scientists in North America.

This year’s theme centres around Women’s History Month. Over 500 attendees from the engineering community and beyond will gather to learn, network, and brainstorm.

Together, we will celebrate the invaluable contributions of historic and modern-day trailblazers — women engineers and engineering graduates who have shaped and changed our country and our lives. Award-winning CBC news anchor Suhana Meharchand will be our Master of Ceremonies.

Our panels will focus on varied and timely themes including diversity in the tech sector, women in transportation, women in politics and leadership, and practical strategies to stand out in the classroom, workplace, and boardroom.

As Women’s History Month is also a time to recognize the work that remains to make gender equality a reality, speakers will outline initiatives that employers can implement to better support inclusive environments.

Registration includes a continental breakfast, lunch, refreshments, and access to our networking reception.

This full-day conference is guaranteed to sell out. To avoid disappointment, visit to reserve your spot today.
