About ONWIE

The Ontario Network of Women in Engineering (ONWiE) was formed in 2005 between all the schools and faculties of engineering across Ontario. The objective of this network is to work collaboratively to support current female engineers, students, and encourage the next generation of women to pursue careers in engineering.

ONWiE works to provide opportunities for women and girls to explore and excel in engineering professions.

Our goals are to: 

  • Collaborate to improve the participation rate of females as students and professionals in engineering in Ontario
  • Promote information sharing on best practices and opportunities around mentorship, communication materials, assessment strategies, and networking for women in engineering
  • Provide opportunities for participants to network and to share information and available resources related to women in engineering.
