30 by 30

What is 30 by 30?

30 by 30 is a goal to raise the percentage of newly licensed female engineers to 30% by the year 2030. Initiated by Engineers Canada in 2013, Engineers and Geoscientists BC has been actively working on a number of initiatives to support diversity in the professions. Engineers and Geoscientists BC is committed to both the attraction and retention of women in the professions of engineering and geoscience.

The 30 by 30 Strategy

To reach the 30 by 30 goal, Engineers and Geoscientists BC Council has endorsed the association’s 30 by 30 strategy.

The strategy was developed after an extensive research and data collection process which included a review of current programs, interviews, surveys, research, a review of external programs and initiatives from across the country, as well as consultation with members.

Our strategy leverages building diversity through our current member program, building relationships and partnershps in support of shared gender diversity goals, and finding ways to support women and girls at every step of their career path.

From this, Guide to Action has been established - one pagers targeted towards each stop of the career path from K-12 to professional members, as well as the general public, and those that help influence the career choices of young girls and boys.
