In this episode, Pierre Donais welcomes Michèle Thibodeau-DeGuire.
In 1963, Michèle Thibodeau-DeGuire became the first woman to earn a degree in civil engineering from the École Polytechnique de Montréal. She went on to enjoy a 20-year career as a structural engineer with consulting firms Francis Boulva et associés and Lalonde, Girouard, Letendre et associés.

A former anchor and journalist at TQS and Télémédia CIMF-FM in Outaouais, Pierre also served as radio host and station manager.
