OSPE - The Voice - May 2019 - 13


OSPE's new Vision and Mission

"For the future, OSPE envisions a diverse and inclusive
profession where engineers are bold, courageous and respected
We want OSPE to be the place where engineers come together
to collaborate with government, industry, academia and the
public, and seize new opportunities to help solve Ontario's
problems with evidence-based, innovative solutions," said Dr.
Tibor Turi, Ph.D., P.Eng., OSPE's new President.
OSPE's mission is to:
* Advocate on issues of importance to society and the
engineering profession
* Create opportunities for engineers to connect, collaborate
and contribute as they progress through their careers
* Ensure government, media and the public appreciate how
critical engineers are to growing Ontario's economy, while
protecting the environment and improving the quality of life
we enjoy in our province

Three Strategic Pillars

Engineers Lead
* Solidify OSPE's position as "the voice" of the profession
by being the association where engineers gather, share
expertise and provide recommendations on issues facing
the profession and society
Engineers Care
* Elevate the awareness of the role engineers play in making the
world a better place, and deepen respect for the engineering
profession in Ontario
Engineers Unite
* Strengthen and grow OSPE's equitable, diverse and inclusive
engineering community and deliver unparalleled value at
every stage of our members' careers
"We are measuring all of OSPE's activities over the next
three years based on our ability to enhance OSPE's relevance,
reputation and reach, and we've identified specific actions to
do so for each pillar," said OSPE CEO Sandro Perruzza.

OSPE's Elected Board of Directors

OSPE welcomed three new Board members and one returning
Board member, including:
Anna Gkalimani, P.Eng., structural engineer
at NA Engineering Associates Inc. in London,
"As an internationally trained engineer myself,
I know the challenges that internationally
trained engineers face in their effort to be
part of the profession and with the licensure
process. I have personal experience of how important it
is to be engaged in the profession, to create networks and
have mentors. By being an active member of the Women in
Engineering Advocacy Task Force (WE ACT) of OSPE, I have

the rewarding opportunity to give back to the profession by
empowering and advocating for women in engineering."
Dr. Thamir (Tom) Murad, Ph.D., P.Eng.,
Country Lead - Engineering, Technology and
Academics at Siemens Canada and head of
Siemens Canada Engineering & Technology
Academy (SCETA) in Oakville, Ontario.
"I genuinely believe that engineering
profession is a noble one, as creative as it is
in building and enhancing the economic and social wellbeing of our society and humanity at large. This should be
recognized and promoted positively to position engineers as
active community leaders."
Tyler Schierholtz, P.Eng., environmental
engineer at Ground Force Environmental Inc.
in Kitchener, Ontario.
"Now, more than ever, it is critically important
that environmental issues be brought to
the forefront of policy discussions with
government and industry leaders in order to
advance key initiatives related to environmental protection,
brownfield redevelopment, and climate change action.
Engineers are uniquely qualified to bridge the gap between
science and public policy - our informed and practical
approach to problem-solving, coupled with professional
communication skills and credibility, allows us to drive smart
policy ideas forward."
Returning Board member, Ronald Walter
Clifton, P.Eng., President & Founder of
CliftonGroup International Limited.
"It is an honour to serve on the OSPE Board
of Directors again, and I welcome the
opportunity to be of service to my chosen
profession. I offer the experience gained from
a full working career in the international high-tech arena as an
Engineer and hands-on CEO. I also bring extensive strategic
and governance experience from serving on several private
and public Boards."
