Empowering change for the female-lived engineering experience
We strive to create a supportive, collaborative environment where our staff can excel. We also recognize that staff come from all walks of life, including, but not limited to, the female*, queer, femme-expressing, and the gender-nonconforming experience. Our goal is to create a safe, inclusive environment for all.
The RISE initiative
RISE is a grassroots staff-led initiative supporting staff at Binnie who identify with the female-lived experience in the engineering workplace. Our mission is to raise female* voices in a collaborative, goal-driven, and supportive environment through regular initiatives and events where we can connect with each other, empower change, and build our business.
*These descriptions are non-exhaustive and may include female, queer, and femme-expressing people, and the gender-nonconforming community. We listen and respect all voices that identify as RISE Members and/or Allies.
