It’s a Black History Month story with role models who aren’t Musicians or Sports heroes.
It’s the story of ten thousand Black engineers who will be coming to Toronto for the National Society of Black Engineers annual convention from March 31st to April 4th, 2010.
The National Society of Black Engineers is one of the largest student-run organizations in the US, centered on improving the recruitment and retention of Black engineering & science students. It diligently follows its mission to “increase the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community”.
Ontario Power Generation (OPG), an province of Ontario government run corporation, recognizes the long term benefits of partnering with this organization and will be funding the convention registration for the students from a local Toronto high school, Blessed Mother Theresa in Scarborough, Ontario. OPG has taken a vested interest in this school, and since October 2009 10-Pickering based employees visit a local high school, to help students prepare for the Engineering Design &
Tri-Math-a-Lon competitions taking place at the annual convention.
The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) organization of over 30,000 members spans all ages with 3 core targets groups: Pre-College Initiative (from grades K-12), Collegiate (college & university students), and Technical & Professional (Alumni & Industry Colleagues). The convention themed “Engineering a Global Impact” will be the largest black professional event ever held in Canada, with mini-conferences focusing content to each of the 3 core groups, a 300+ company career fair, many networking and tour opportunities.
There are many more opportunities to help students attending this convention. For more information visit http://convention.nsbe.org or call (416) 520-2138.
