A brief description of the institution’s formal community partnership to advance sustainability:

Women are historically underrepresented in science and technology-related jobs. Conceived by ÉTS and powered by RBC, the G-CHANGE program's mission is to inspire up-and-coming women aged 15-19 to choose STEM to innovate and act as real agents of change. Following the success of the 2020 event, new partners have been added to support the program. In addition, for the 2021 event, ÉTS has invested $133,660.05 in the G-Change program to help fund the various positions necessary for its success.

Many of the themes addressed during the program's events are related to sustainable development, such as human health, environmental impacts and the role of the engineer, the impacts of human activities on climate change, agriculture, etc.). Also, at the 2021 event, the panel was represented solely by women (approximately 60).

The project is ambitious: to mobilize key players in the Montreal community to help reduce GHG emissions by 55% by 2030 and put the city on the path to carbon neutrality by 2050.
