Looking Back Through Our Century: April 1969
In April of 1969, Judith Weiszmann, P.Eng, FEC was one of the first female engineers registered to practice in the Province of Manitoba. Despite significant barriers and skepticism near the beginning of her career, Judith eventually overcame all of them and went on to pioneer a successful 40-year long career as a structural engineer. She was given the Association's Award of Merit in 1995 and, in 2016, Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba introduced the Judith Weiszmann Women in Engineering Champion Award in her honour. To learn more about Judith Weiszmann, see the full news story.
