Hey everyone! I am Ruma Ahmed, your new director of cegeps. I am currently in my second year of Industrial engineering in the coop program and I am very excited to be part of the team. While in cegep, I was extremely hesitant to go into engineering until I met an WIE outreach member who inspired me and gave me the confidence to pursue a degree in engineering at Concordia. I started as an outreach volunteer and this year it is my turn to take the lead in encouraging cegep students to become future engineers. We will hold scientific workshops and presentations promoting gender equality and education in various cegeps.
If you want to help out, feel free to contact me :).
