    EWB NSW in partnership with Women in Engineering, EA Newcastle division, invites you to Engineering Redefined, a discussion on how explicitly embedding a social focus into engineering can attract and maintain diverse professionals. In 2018, EWB Australia released a report, Engineering Redefined, which examined diversity in Engineering and called for the sector to be reimagined. Amongst a range of findings, the report suggests that involving women in humanitarian and social projects could be key to getting more females involved in engineering.  Join our inclusive event, on Wednesday 6th October at 5pm, and listen to our panelists bring their lived experiences, academic insights and imaginings of how we can address the diversity issue in engineering through redefining the profession as diverse, inclusive, values aligned and socially connected.

  4. The Vinnies NSW recovery program has been running since mid-2020 and has transitioned from immediate relief and individual crisis support, through to longer-term community recovery and development. Community members commonly approach Vinnies for help with issues that are hard to handle or have slipped through the cracks. There are two communities in need of specialised engineering help right now. Vinnies is seeking experienced (or up and coming) engineers, who might be able to provide technical help either pro bono or at a discounted rate.

  9. Engineers Without Borders Australia (EWB-A) are seeking three rapid repair roles related to the recent flooding in Dili. On 4 April 2021, Timor-Leste experienced catastrophic flooding from intense rainfall generated by Cyclone Seroja. This was a ‘once in 250 years’ event that critically damaged, and in some locations destroyed, Dili’s urban water supply infrastructure. As a result, an estimated 45% of Dili households have been left without access to clean water and continuous water supply. The Dili Water Supply Rapid Repair Program (DWSRRP) aims to urgently address the immediate need for clean and continuous water supply, complete rehabilitation works, and conduct long-term resilience planning. The DWSRRP implementing partners are PARTISIPA, Cardno, and EWB Australia. There are three roles available for immediate deployment to Timor-Leste: Senior Water Design Engineering Design Draftperson Survey/GIS Full details available at https://ewb.org.au/careers/

    For 17 years EWB Australia has been nurturing the growth of ‘humanitarian engineering’ through education. We have cultivated and activated a movement of new-look engineers. They are future-fit professionals, grounded with a community-first mindset and equipped with activated social and technical skills. They are capable of sensitively ideating solutions for global issues, at all levels. Yet we live and learn within structures and power imbalances that reinforce the very issues we are trying to solve. How can we support individuals, organisations and the sector to be enabled to act, so that we have the best chance of a future that is regenerative, inclusive and whole?
