Spread the love!

The Women in Engineering Summit (WES) team is hosting its seventh annual event and we are looking for sponsors to help us with our hybrid event. Thanks to the support of sponsors like you, over the past 6 years our non-profit organization has reached over 1,000 engineering students and professionals with solutions to encourage womxn’s and other minorities career satisfaction and professional registration, goals in alignment with Engineers Canada 30 by 30 Initiative, which aims to increase the number of newly licensed professional women in Engineering to 30% by 2030.

WES 2024 has an incredible line-up of speakers who will empower underrepresented communities of engineering professionals such as womxn, indigenous, and LGBTQ+ by addressing unconscious bias, inclusion strategies, career planning, mental wellbeing. Attendees can participate online or in person (Edmonton and Toronto) on June 7th, 2024, 8:30 am – 45:00 pm MST.

This event would not be possible without the hard work of our volunteers, and your support. As a sponsor, your company will gain visibility as a promoter of equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) among students, practicing professionals, the community, potential partners / clients as well as regulators and other stakeholders. You will have the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and companies who share your values, culture, and voice your position on 30 by 30 and EDI in the workplace.

Our team is is looking for monetary donations to help with the cost of venues and A/V, speakers’ stipends, technology costs for the on-line platform, donations towards students and unemployed attendees fees, and scholarships to help those applying for their professional designation.

To contribute as a sponsor or to discuss alternate sponsorship ideas, please get in touch with us. We thank you in advance for reviewing this material and for supporting an inclusive work environment. You can find more details for our sponsorship package here:WES2024 Sponsorship Package
