EnggTALK 2019, Powered by Pecha Kucha - Diversity & Inclusion in Engineering

When: March 7 2019

Where: Edmonton, Canada


Spread ideas. Network with peers. Meet the engineering leaders of tomorrow.

The Faculty of Engineering Young Alumni Council (EnggYAC) is excited to host their second EnggTALK , a speakers series focused on hearing from young engineering alumni from the University of Alberta that are doing really great things. Our goal is to inspire the next generation of engineers.

This is also an awesome opportunity to connect with peers while listening to quick, high impact presentations from your engineering classmates and colleagues.

Share your passion for diversity and inclusion in engineering.

This year, EnggTALK coincides with International Women’s Day 2019 (#IWD2019) and our theme will support their #BalanceforBetter campaign, because we believe in a gender-balanced and inclusive engineering community.
