CLAYTON BOS P.Eng. Building a Thriving Community


Shifting the Narrative One Podcast at a Time A storyteller and podcaster, Imeson analyses real-life engineering failures—and what we can do better next time—in Failurology . She also highlights the struggles and triumphs of female engineers in the Glorious Ladies of Engineering . Imeson is proud to be a voice amplifying the collective experience of women in male-dominated professions. “The circumstances vary, but women often have the same 10 issues…. I feel like there’s so many of us going through the same thing. If we can just group together and inspire and build one another up, then we’re going to take over the world.”

Bos volunteered more than 500 hours in 2021, earning him a Star of Alberta Volunteer Award from the Government of Alberta. He coaches youth sports, gives his time to community groups and clubs, and is an executive board member of APEGA’s Medicine Hat Branch. He also instils a love of engineering in children by organizing outreach activities—like popsicle-bridge- breaking competitions—in local elementary schools. “I really believe we need to build an environment that’s obviously right for our natural environment, but the bigger part of that is our social environment.”
