Hydro One Women in Engineering Scholarship

Hydro One is in the business of distributing and transmitting electricity. Hydro One also has a history of supporting women in developing satisfying professional careers for mutual benefit. Part of this support has been community engagement through avenues such as the College Consortium and the University Partnership. 2014 marked ten years of Hydro One’s involvement in Go Eng Girl, a program aimed at increasing the level of interest of girls in STEM subjects. This ten year anniversary also marks the establishment of the Hydro One Women in Engineering Scholarship, an extension of Hydro One’s tangible support for young women wishing to embark on a career in Engineering. The Go Eng Girl program is also evidence of Hydro One’s visible support for women in general, as part of Hydro One’s overall Diversity & Inclusion Program.
