Please join the Okanagan Branch to celebrate International Women in Engineering Day with a workshop on how to use your YOU factor to boost your career.

Do people know what makes you unique and valuable? Do you stand out from other engineers and geoscientists doing a similar role? Are you working on the projects you want?

It's common for employees to think that their expertise and work would be recognized by simply keeping their head down, working hard, and making their deadlines. In reality, high performance gets lost in overall team performance when you fail to showcase your own work. Being able to clearly describe what you do, identify how you add value, and highlight the areas you want to work on are critical to the success of your career. You won’t get lost in the crowd when you become more visible and have the confidence to share your achievements with others.

Join us to celebrate International Women in Engineering Day with a workshop that will walk you through how to build your value statement, identify who needs to hear it, and even address those voices that you may not believe in...yet!


Christine McHanson

Over the last 15 years, Christine worked as a chemical engineer at on-site manufacturing plants and corporate headquarters as an internal consultant. Throughout her career, she has noticed that regardless of the location or her role, there were gaps in communication, leadership, and business skills. This resulted in barriers to the development of great ideas and top technical talent feeling discouraged. Today, Christine works as a leadership coach to help engineers and other scientists achieve the results they aspire for.
