In winter 2015, ACEC-Manitoba’s Technical Women in Consulting Engineering (TWICE) committee launched a survey, inviting engineering professionals in the consulting engineering services sector in Manitoba to share their workplace experiences. We explored the factors that engineering professionals find critical to engagement and that they use to make career decisions. The committee wanted to capture a snapshot in order for ACEC-Manitoba member firms to have current and local data to understand the experiences of engineering & technical staff. The results were amenable to looking at differences between early career (0-7 yrs’ experience) and more experienced (8+ yrs experience) respondents. TWICE was also interested to explore potential differences between male and female respondents as part of its committee mandate.
