The Women In Engineering and Geoscience Division would like to invite you to participate in our book club. Each session we will select a book intended to spark a conversation about women and the workplace, and we will host a teleconference with members across the province in order for us to connect and discuss the book together.

How Book Club Works

The book club is run primarily through the volunteer efforts of the Women in Engineering and Geoscience Division executive committee. Sessions are hosted via teleconference so that members across the province can discuss and connect on the book together.

About the book

Five years have passed since women were exhorted to ‘lean in’. Over that time, the world has transformed beyond all expectations. But why should anyone ‘lean in’ to a patriarchal system that is out of date? Why not change it entirely for the good of us all?

In A Good Time to be a Girl, Helena Morrissey sets out how we might achieve the next big breakthrough towards a truly inclusive modern society.
