Episode 20: Reengineering Engineering ft. Jenan Abderrahman
Jenan wanted to be a teacher. It was her target, her goal, her dream; that is, until the encouragement of one of her own teachers led her to apply to the Aerospace Engineering program at Ryerson University. As an engineer, Jenan noticed quickly the lack of female members in the engineering profession - a profession that continues on some level to be a "boy's club". In fact, it was the need to change this that pushed her now, as a full-fledged engineer, to join Women in Engineering, teach robotics to young girls, and become a key member in growing the Women in Engineering and Science Design Competition. Discussing engineering in Toronto, women in science, and changing gender norms.
