Engineering students promote diversity and inclusion

At UWindsor Engineering, we believe that one of the most important ingredients for creative thinking is diversity. We are committed to fostering a respectful, fair, and inclusive learning and working environment for all of our students, faculty and staff. From all of us at the Faculty of Engineering, we would like to say #YouBelong.

Women account for an average of 19 per cent of engineering students in Canada, a participation rate essentially unchanged since 2013, says Eleane Paguaga Amador, president of the Women in Engineering Club and a third-year industrial engineering major.

“We not only believe in supporting all the women and gender non-binary students in our faculty, but also want to remind future engineering students that there will always be a place for them in our community,” she says.

“We hope that in the years to come, the Faculty of Engineering will grow to become more gender-diverse because this world is too vast for us to encourage stereotypes of what it means to be an engineering student.”

The You Belong video is a collaborative effort by the Women in Engineering Club, Engineering Student Society and Faculty of Engineering.
