Impact & Background

Our Impact

ENGR Solutions (formerly Omor Bros.) empowered the NSERC Chair for Women in Science and Engineering (CWSE) Network to amplify their voice and reach in the fight for gender equity in STEM. Our web development expertise transformed their online presence, enabling them to connect with, educate, and inspire women and allies across Canada.

The Background

Women remain significantly underrepresented in STEM fields. The CWSE Network, a vital initiative funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), aims to change this by promoting gender equity and the advancement of women in STEM. Their success relies on effective communication and outreach.

The challenge

  • The CWSE Network needed a robust online platform to:

    • Provide a valuable resource: To share information, opportunities, and events related to gender equity in STEM.

    Facilitate engagement: To foster connections among women in STEM and create a space for collaboration.

Our Solution

  • We delivered a comprehensive website,, that serves as a central hub for the CWSE Network.The website features:

    • Clear information about the network’s mission, vision, and initiatives.
    • A calendar of events, conferences, and workshops.
    • A resource library with articles, reports, and tools.
    • A membership portal for connecting with other women in STEM.

    Additionally, we provided ongoing consulting and maintenance services to ensure the website remains up-to-date and continues to meet the Network’s evolving needs.
