Preparations for #NEM2022 are well underway
Is it just us or did the month of November fly by? Over the last few months, we have been busy spreading the word about National Engineering Month 2022 and in this post, we’ll be sharing the latest update as to how things have been coming along.
In these times of great adaptation, nothing is as powerful as practicing how to learn and expanding our perspectives as a community. In 2022 we will be continuing to deepen the impact of NEM events by focusing on the theme of lifelong learning for post-secondary students, professionals in our community, and interdisciplinary professionals. We will also continue to curate the weeks thematically with Engineers Canada to provide a synched-up national NEM. Given the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, all NEM 2022 Ontario events will continue to be held online via the NEM Ontario Zoom account.
Themes for #NEM 2022 include:
- Week 1 The P.Eng. Designation
- Week 2 Lifelong Learning
- Week 3 Spotlight on the Engineering Student Challenge
- Week 4 Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
- Week 5 Engineers & Politics
