Equity Officer Terra Garneau
Currently as the Research Facilitator for the Faculty of Engineering, one of my focus areas is to help researchers bring Equity, Diversity and Inclusion into their research activities. I would like to combine this with my long time involvement with AASUA and as the AASUA Equity Officer.
Terra Garneau, P.Eng. received her B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering in 1985 from the University of Alberta. She holds a Management Development Certificate, and a Marketing Management Certificate both from the U of A. She worked as an Engineer and as a Product Manager with TELUS Communications for 15 years prior to joining the the University 19 years ago in the Faculty of Engineering as the Department APO in Electrical & Computer Engineering. She is currently with the Research Services Office as the Research Facilitator for the Faculty of Engineering.
Terra has been involved in AASUA since 2008 and the heart of that involvement has been an urge to contribute to the community of members of AAUSA.
