Podcast and Book Club Discussions

The Women in Engineering and Geoscience podcast and book club is for the people who are interested in sparking conversations about women and the workplace.

How It Works

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