International Women in Engineering Day

June 23 is International Women in Engineering Day and we want to celebrate their place in our field by giving them a voice. Women now make up almost a third of our community and their presence will certainly continue to grow in the coming years.

Women are still under-represented in engineering, a sector that is known to be predominantly male. However, over the past 10 years, the statistics are promising as we have seen a steady increase in female students in this field. According to a study by the OIQ, women represent 15% of engineers in the province, whereas in 1989 they were only 4%. This is an encouraging figure that proves the determination of the sector to change the way of thinking on this subject.

FNX-INNOV values the contribution of women in its teams

Our community now counts 333 women among our 1140 employees. This represents close to 30% of our community. This is a source of pride for us and an asset for our company, because we firmly believe in the contribution of women in our teams.

We invite you to watch this video and celebrate the messages of our experts, because there is a bright future for women in engineering!
