The formation of Together WiE Can, a group of UBC engineering alumni and friends who are dedicated to supporting women in the engineering field, presents a promising new chapter in our journey towards gender parity. Together we will break down gender stereotypes, demystify engineering and encourage young girls to pursue engineering studies. At the post-secondary level, supporters like you will help to ensure that we can continue to attract, retain and support female engineering students through scholarships, mentorship and campus initiatives like the Women in Engineering (WiE) Club.
Together WiE Can is an opportunity for UBC engineering alumni and friends to co-invest in the creation of a more inclusive and diverse engineering profession. In that same spirit of community, we welcome gifts of any size because we believe that our shared vision can only be achieved, together.
Please note that annual memberships are available with gifts made at the following levels:
- A minimum donation of $1,000 (renewed annually) for individuals 10+ years post-graduation
- A minimum donation of $500 (renewed annually) with individuals <10 years post-graduation
