Rafia Waraich
Title: Procurement Engineer - New Grad
Company: AECL

 Rafia works as a Procurement Engineer at Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL). In her role she procures parts for utilities around the world. When it comes to the favourite part of her job Rafia admits she loves meeting new people and working on projects that entail almost every aspect of a CANDU Reactor. Her most rewarding project to date was when she was involved in supplying special panels for Ontario Power Generation.

Rafia has recently graduated with a Bachelors of Engineering and Society degree and is currently certified as an Engineer in Training from the Professional Engineers of Ontario.

Rafia acknowledges that almost everyone she has met has inspired her in one way or another, as she always has something to learn from everyone. Rafia loves how her job gives her the personal satisfaction of being involved in providing safe, green energy in almost every continent of the world.

Given the chance to speak with today’s youth Rafia would say ‘if you are passionate about something, make sure you pursue it to the best of your abilities. And always remind yourself of your goals to ensure you don’t drift from them.’

Rafia joined WiN soon after she recognized there was a group of amazing women who could help her learn, both professionally and personally. She is a committed member to WiN as she appreciates knowing she is a part of a group supporting, as well as inspiring, women and girls around the world.

Rafia credits the amazing mentors from WiN who continue to advise and support her in reaching her personal and career goals. The support system and encouragement she has received from WiN executives has helped her create a network of inspiring professionals.

In her spare time Rafia enjoys baking, walking and reading. She also finds time to volunteer in her community in an effort to help give back to the community that has made her who she is today.
