According to Statistics Canada, women “remain less likely to choose a career in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and computer science.” Their report helps explain the importance of groups like Young Women in Energy (YWE).
This week, YWE, a Calgary-based networking group, recognized 12 women for their achievements in the male-dominated energy sector. One of those recognized is Jil McDonald, the AER’s vice president of Science and Evaluation. With a greater-than 50 per cent female workforce, the AER is doing well in promoting career options for women in energy.
