To learn more about the project and the Golden Boy, see the news story.
Indigenous Members Round-Table Discussions
Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba is working to increase the number of Indigenous practitioners in engineering and geoscience. As part of that work, we want to better understand the perspectives and experiences of Indigenous engineers and geoscientists. We have engaged Probe Research Inc., a professional research firm, to conduct a series of round-table discussions with Indigenous Association members as well as Indigenous engineering graduates who did not ultimately pursue a professional designation. If you are interested in participating in the round-table discussions, see the event listing for more information.
