Join us for Canadian Composites Corner’s (CCC) roundtable, interactive networking event, brought to you by Dr. Lucy Li, Vice President of Canadian Association for Composite Structures and Materials (CACSMA), coming up on Friday, February 24.
The CCC event series will bring you the community events, opportunities, and EDI topics of interest to you – an opportunity to connect with colleagues across Canada in an informal setting. In this series of CCC event, we discuss a variety of subjects related to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI). The topics will include barriers, mentorship, allyship, how to make your workplace more inclusive, unconscious bias, and more. Everyone is welcome to join and switch on your video camera to meet one another.
In this session, Dr. Lucy Li leads a roundtable discussion with invited guests on Breaking Barriers based on an EDI survey conducted at CANCOM2022 conference in Fredericton, Aug 2022.
“The survey results and the EDI workshop discussion highlight the barriers faced by the community, especially the graduate students and minority groups. The question is how to support our community members to break barrier”, says Dr. Li. You are encouraged to raise questions and share your thoughts at the CCC event.

As Vice President of Canadian Association for Composite Structures and Materials (CACSMA), she initiated the EDI events for the Canadian composites community.
