Happy International Women’s Day

March 8th marks International Women’s Day – a global event commemorating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.

Francesca Cusati, EIT of our Surrey Head Office location recently represented Aplin Martin at the British Columbia Institute of Technology’s (BCIT) Women in Engineering Panel Event as a guest speaker.

The event caters to the aspiring engineering community at BCIT. The panelists were invited to share their firsthand experiences as women engineers and provide insight on the transition from post-secondary to working professionals.

“The majority of engineering programs are often male, and this then translates into a male dominated workforce. Events like these are incredibly important so young women can recognize that there is very much a space for women in the engineering community.” - Francesca Cusati

At Aplin Martin, we recognize the importance of this day and take it as an opportunity to reflect on diversity and equity in the workplace. Our commitment to diversity is reflected in the fact that, despite being a STEM organization where gender representation of females is known to be low, every fourth employee in our company is a female. We strive to push this ratio to a balanced outcome.

Our recruitment protocols are intentionally crafted to minimize the gender gap. When you join the Aplin Martin family, all of our employees are granted the same opportunities to ensure we train and promote the best candidates based on any given role.
