  • Congratulations to Sadia Khaf - Winner of IEEE Canada 2022 Women in Engineering Prize

    This prize is sponsored by the Judy Clift Fund at the IEEE Canadian Foundation which was established to honour a gracious individual who believed strongly in gender equality. Her professional life as a special education teacher and administrator complemented her role as a mother who was determined to raise her daughters with independence and encouraged them to pursue career opportunities that were not limited by gender. She was also incredibly supportive of volunteer IEEE activities.

    The purpose is to recognize excellence in young women engineering professionals and to support the Women In Engineering programme within IEEE in Canada. We encourage anyone who supports these objectives to direct additional donations to this fund to increase the value of the annual award.

    All female IEEE Canada members who received their first professional degree within the last fifteen years and who are active in IEEE activities. There is one prize each year, value $1,000.
