Local woman talks about the challenges of being a black female in STEM
Trying to find work in one’s field in a new country when you are educated overseas is pretty tough. Now imagine being foreign-trained and a woman working in a profession where your co-workers are predominantly male. That was the reality for one of our next guests. Caroline Mekodom got her degree in electrical and automation engineering in her home country of Cameroon, but when she moved to Canada, she had trouble finding employment. That’s when the Association of Science and Engineering Technology Professionals of Alberta, or ASET, stepped in to help. Caroline is in studio this afternoon joined by Barry Cavanaugh, the CEO of ASET.
