Getting excited about engineering with Go ENG Girl

Go ENG Girl volunteers and participants at event

On Saturday, October 17, 110 young girls and families in our community joined us on campus to get excited about engineering at the popular Ontario-wide event, Go ENG Girl.

Hosted by the Ontario Network of Women in Engineering (ONWiE), the Go ENG Girl initiative partners with universities across the province to provide opportunities for girls in grades 7 to 10 and one parent or guardian to visit their local campus and learn from female professionals, academics, and students about the world of engineering. While the girls enjoy fun, hands-on activities and student-run exhibitions, parents and guardians are treated to an informative session on the various paths one can take in a career in engineering.

Last Wednesday, October 6, the Equity Office hosted Mike Dormitz, founder of The Date Safe Project, on campus to speak to an audience of over 100 people about significant issues surrounding consent and healthy relationships. Students, faculty, and staff, along with members of the Waterloo community, listened intently to his talk titled, Can I Kiss You? Through his use of interactive humour and charisma, Mike engaged in valuable discussions with attendees, leaving a lasting impact on the well-being of our community.
