Réjeanne Aimey is the current President and Chair of the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE), with experience in the automotive, nuclear, and tax consulting industries in Ontario. In this episode, we explore Réjeanne's engineering journey, and the many lessons she learned from her early career experiences.
We also discuss OSPE's new campaign focusing on advancing diversity and inclusion in the profession, called #EngineeringForChange. While many regulated professions and organizations have begun the hard work of uprooting systemic bias in their culture, training and licensure, too many of Canada’s leaders are still debating whether or not issues of equity, diversity and inclusion are just trends that will blow over. This is a united call to action to bring real change.
The episode also highlights challenges experienced by women from equity seeking groups, especially in obtaining effective mentorship and sponsorship opportunities that foster career advancement. What can organizations do better to improve employee experience and talent retention? Keep listening as we discuss these topics in this action packed episode.
