The Women In Power collaborative venture is a networking, mentorship, and peer-to-peer support group that spans across the entirety of the CEATI organization, including all our programs. It aims to promote engineering and other technical careers to women in the field, and to share common challenges and strategies for overcoming obstacles as women in a field populated predominantly by men. In an effort to facilitate comradery and networking, this group is currently available to anyone involved in the CEATI programs or events at no added cost.
The goals and objectives of the CEATI Women in Power Group are as follows:
Networking with other women in the industry;
Promoting engineering and other technical careers to women in the field, especially to those just starting out in their career;
Sharing common challenges and strategies for overcoming obstacles as women in a field populated predominantly by men;
Brainstorming together to identify common patterns and develop new strategies for educating colleagues/superiors on how to successfully encourage and support females in the field.
In order to address and achieve these goals, the CEATI Women in Power Group offers the following three initiatives:
Face-to-face networking at industry-open CEATI events.
Women in Power Webinar Series, which encourages and promotes the sharing of personal experiences from women in the industry.
Mentoring Triad Program, linking up 3 women at different points in their career (early, mid and late) to facilitate additional networking and communication on a more personal level.
For additional information on this group, or to get involved today, please contact us.
The CEATI Women in Power Mentoring Triad Program connects groups of three or four women at different points in their career within the power industry to facilitate additional networking, share common challenges, and develop strategies for overcoming obstacles. Triads are assembled based upon interests, experience level, and geographical location. Mentoring Triads are required to meet at least once every two months by conference call, but are welcome to communicate on a regular basis. General guidance and discussion topics are provided for the first call.
The fifth year of this mentorship program will run from September 1, 2021 to August 31, 2022, at which time the triads will change and others will have the chance to sign up and join the program. We will do our best to accommodate all applications, but please note that if we are unable to match everyone for this year, priority will be given to those who were not matched for the next year.
Founded in October 2013 by Joanna Osawe & Rebecca Black, WiRE aims to advance the role and recognition of women in the energy sector by forging partnerships between a spectrum of renewable energy industry associations, other related networking groups for professional women from across the energy sector, and academic providers.
Women+Power is a community for women of all levels of experience working in or with Alberta’s power industry along with men who support us as allies. We provide opportunities for members to connect with, support, recognize, and inspire each other to empower women to achieve their full potential both professionally and personally.
Through the power of community, we believe we can work together to address the challenges that result in and from the under-representation of women in the power industry by developing opportunities to promote increased diversity and inclusion.
