Dr. Eugene Fiume
Dean of the Faculty of Applied Sciences
The Faculty of Applied Sciences is hugely supportive of the efforts made by the organizations that support SFU's woman students, staff, and faculty in engineering, science, and technology in attracting more women to STEM. For our part, we recognise that this is a long-term issue in which equity, diversion, and inclusion is interleaved with all aspects of our work. Our faculty is deeply engaged in mutually supporting efforts, from developing new approaches to faculty hiring, to redesigning educational curricula, and to expanding our reach beyond the university to expand the future pool of qualified students. It is a long road to which we are fully committed, and we are seeing some of the fruits of our work in the significantly increased participation rate of women in our new School of Sustainability Energy Engineering. We hope to transfer that success to our others schools in the coming months and years.
