CIGRE Canada Women in Engineering is pleased to host a panel discussion during the WIE Luncheon on Tuesday, 2018 October 16.

The topics of diversity and inclusion are prevalent in the media, coffee shops and hallways of government lately, and many groups are speaking-up. What is happening in the engineering sector? Do we share the same concerns as activist groups, other professions, and leading Canadian corporations?

This panel will discuss the issues and to share their experiences and successes. Our panelists are:

  • Johanne Picard-Thompson, AltaLink Senior VP, Corporate Services
  • Miranda Keating Erickson, AESO Vice-President, Markets
  • Shane Mailey, Manitoba Hydro Vice-President Transmission
