Women In Engineering Year-End Dinner
Wednesday, March 23

Attendance was record-breaking at this year's Women In Engineering dinner.  Over 90 faculty, staff, students and alumni attended the dinner at the Hilton Hotel, London.

Attendees enjoyed a delicious dinner, silent auction and raffles, a guest speaker from GM and a lot of laughter and networking.

Kathryn Stoyle, a Vehicle Assembly Engineer, working for GM at CAMI, was invited to speak to the group about her experiences as a female engineer in the automotive industry.  As a recent grad from MacMaster University, Kathryn was able to provide the group, consisting mostly of Western Engineering students, with an idea of what to expect when joining the work world.  She shared some of her success stories, challenging experiences and advice for surviving in a male dominated environment.

A total of $300 was raised through the silent auction and raffle tables.  All funds will go towards Women In Engineering activities for the coming year.
