Go ENG Girl at Western University

What is Go ENG Girl?

Go ENG Girl is an exciting opportunity for Grade 7-10 girls, including all who identify as female, to learn about the wonderful world of engineering: "A Caring Profession." 

Participants are able to learn from female professionals, academics and students as well as enjoy fun, hands-on activities, informative parents' sessions and engineering student exhibits. Last year's event saw Western Engineering welcome over 110 Grade 7-10 girls and their families to the exciting career of engineering.

This year will look a bit different with the entire event moving online; however, we are working on a variety of ways to ensure that participants still get the same great experience.

2021 Keynote Speaker:

This year we are welcoming Michelle Moxley-Peltier as our 2021 Go ENG Girl Keynote Speaker.

Michelle Moxley Peltier

Michelle is a professional engineer with diverse experience in engineering and operations within the automotive and natural gas utility industries.  Throughout her career, she adapted to economic and corporate changes by accepting new opportunities which exposed her to other disciplines.  Her career path is somewhat unusual with positions in automotive controls, electric power generation, energy efficiency programs, construction, and infrastructure planning.  Michelle will share her engineering journey, and how life events can “encourage” you to make modifications to your plans.    

Personally, Michelle is a married mother of two teenagers ages 14 and 17, who volunteers for children’s organizations like soccer, hockey (but can't skate), and Girl Guides of Canada.  She likes handicrafts and photography.
