This January, our chapter sent nine chapter members to EWB’s National Conference. National Conference is a keystone in the organization’s mandate to invest in its people and leaders. It brings together members and leaders from university chapters, ventures, national office and the professional community to connect, collaborate and learn. Conference not only features in-depth learning about EWB as an organization, but also about topics like international development, innovation, the engineering profession, and oppression. This learning is complemented with intensive personal development, including training in leadership, systems thinking, communication, and personal alignment among many other topics.
Our members gained so much from this experience to bring back to our chapter. We are thankful for the support of EWB and of Memorial University for their contributions which allowed us to bring so many chapter members to this amazing learning experience.
