Celebrating International Women in Engineering Day 2020
International Women in Engineering day is celebrated each year to recognize the valuable contribution of women in the engineering field and to encourage more young women to consider careers in engineering. Despite some progress in recent years, women still make up only a fraction of the engineers around the globe. For instance, women make up just 12% of engineers in the UK and 13% in the United States.
Betty Lin, materials engineer, backfill expert, and recognized role model
Betty is a manager and global expert in our backfill services team. She joined Hatch in 2008 to develop the group’s technical knowledge of the properties and characteristics of thickened tailings, paste, and backfill. She has extensive experience in fill design, process optimization, and designing different types of backfill plants for mine waste management. She obtained her bachelor's and master's degrees in materials engineering from the University of Toronto, is a designated Professional Engineer (P.Eng) and a Project Management Professional (PMP), and is both a published author and award winner from international technical societies.
Even more impressive than her technical acumen is her commitment to contributing to the broader mining industry and her passion for mentoring others. She mentors students and young professionals, both at her alma mater and at Hatch. She has a passion for championing women in engineering, and proudly represents Hatch as a member of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy, and Petroleum (CIM).
It’s for these reasons, and many more, that CIM recently awarded Betty with the CIM Presidents’ Role Model Medal. This isn’t the first time that CIM has honored Betty’s outstanding contribution, she was awarded with the District Distinguished Service Award in 2017.
