Meet our Team
WIE Executive Team 2023-2024
Linh Nguyen (She/Her)
Hello :) My name is Linh and I am Co President of Women In Engineering (WIE). I am in my final year as an Industrial Engineering student. I have been in the organization for 3 years: I started off as director of Conference then VP Conference and now I have the honor of leading this amazing group of people during my last year as a proud Concordia student. Being in WIE really made my university experience worthwhile and it is my goal to inspire other GCS students to be a part of WIE community! I love baking as well as doing DIY projects :)
Sonia Singh (She/Her)
Hi there! My name is Sonia and I am this year’s Co President of Women in Engineering (WIE). I am currently in my second year of computer science. I first joined WIE as an ambassador in late 2021 to be able to volunteer in different events that WIE organizes. Then, I went on to become VP Outreach, and now I have the pleasure to be at the head of WIE alongside Linh where we lead a team of future bright engineers and keep pushing WIE’s mission together! My goal is to bring more awareness about the gender gap in STEM and to inspire others to keep moving forward with their dreams even in the face of obstacles. On a personal note, I love photography, traveling, connecting with others and trying out different coffee shops all around the world! :)
Lina Ismail (She/Her)
Hello! I’m Lina and I’m currently in my last year studying Computer Engineering. I first joined WIE as an ambassador and I’ve also been involved in IEEE Concordia throughout my degree. This year, I’m very excited to be part of the team as VP Internal! I look forward to making a direct contribution to women who are eager to grow in the field of Engineering and empowering them to pursue their passion. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
Chloé de Carvalho (She/Her)
Bonjour! I’m Chloé, a second year civil engineering student at Concordia, and this year’s WIE VP Ambassador! I’m privileged to call this my third year with WIE, my first two being as an ambassador and later VP Webmaster. A little fun fact about myself; I’m currently attempting to learn Danish. This year, I’m looking forward to continuing to promote equal opportunities in engineering, as well as building and providing a positive and inclusive community for students at Concordia. If ever you have any questions about WIE or about how you can get involved, email me anytime!
Yasmine Hilout (She/Her)
Greetings! I'm Yasmine, WIE's VP External and a third-year software engineering student. I reached WIE as an ambassador as soon as I assisted their famous Power Networking event and saw how useful the event was and how inspiring it was to be in a room full of motivated women in Engineering ready to share their way to success. Whether you are an executive, ambassador, or event attendee, WIE offers a unique opportunity to connect with accomplished female engineering leaders, providing valuable insights. WIE extends beyond inspiration, serving as a platform to empower and educate younger generations, from elementary to high school and Cegep students. As a female engineering student, I wholeheartedly believe in our mission at WIE because I genuinely advocate for women pursuing engineering studies. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or ideas related to our cause and how you can contribute or benefit!😉🙂
Capria Yee (She/Her)
Greetings! I'm Capria, currently in my third year as an Industrial Engineering Co-op student. This marks my first year serving in a leadership role within WIE, and I am genuinely thrilled to be part of this dynamic group of dedicated and inspiring women! As the VP Finance, I am dedicated to maintaining the financial responsibility of the association, guaranteeing that our organization can host “cents”-ational events that promote equality and representation!
Emilia Ventulieri (She/Her)
Hi hi!! I’m Emilia and I am Co-VP Experience for the second year! This will be my third year part of the team, and I am so happy to be part of WIE for my last year in Mechanical Engineering.

I got involved in WIE through the ambassador program during my first year. WIE is an incredible association, and being part of a community of strong and like-minded women has been so helpful for me to navigate my studies as an engineering student. I hope to help make our community grow and inspire other students like I have been inspired ! Outside of school, I am a theater actress. I love to write songs and dance ! Musical theater is one of my favorite things in the world :) Feel free to reach out to me, whether it is to speak about WIE, mechanical engineering, engineering in general or your new favorite album !

Tharushi Rathnayaka (She/Her)
Hey everyone! I am Tharushi Rathnayaka, a final-year international student pursuing Aerospace Engineering. I am excited to be part of the WIE team this year as the director of conferences. I joined WIE because I wanted to be part of a community that empowers women. I was involved with the Engineering and Computer Science Association for three years now, which has allowed me to give back to the engineering community, and now I look forward to doing the same for women in engineering.
