Speaker BIO and Topic Information

Delia Warren (P. Eng.) is director of Iron & Earth East – the eastern chapter of Iron & Earth. A Memorial University graduate in mechanical engineering, she’s spent 7 years working in the offshore oil and gas industry in Scotland, France and at home in St. John’s. Starting her career as a pipeline engineer in R&D she eventually transitioned into subsea and offshore structural design.

After getting laid off from the oil services company she worked for in June of 2016,  Delia began to volunteer for Iron & Earth East and eventually took on the role of director in October. She also sits on the board of directors for the national organization.
Iron & Earth East (I&EE) has the unique position of advocating for renewable energy jobs in a province with an underdeveloped renewable energy industry. The mandate of I&EE has thus been to advocate for an increased presence of renewable energy projects and to educate the public on the opportunities that are available to us, and our trades workers, in this industry.

The flagship project for I&EE in 2017 is the 365 Greenhouse: a year-round greenhouse powered by renewable energy technology. In addition, they have launched a Speaker Series and plan to travel around the province, addressing misinformation surrounding the renewable energy potential for Newfoundland and Labrador, and identifying opportunities for workers through “shop talks”. As the world shifts away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy, I&EE want to make sure that Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are not left behind.

Iron & Earth was founded and operates on Indigenous land within Treaty Six Territory and Métis Region 4 in amiskwaciy-wâskahikan (in Nehiyawewin/Cree), so-called Edmonton. The home of many Indigenous Peoples including the Nehiyawak/Cree, Tsuut’ina, Niitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Haudenosaunee/Iroquois, Dene Suliné, Anishinaabe/Ojibway/Saulteaux, and the Inuk/Inuit.

We pay our respects to all Indigenous Peoples of this land. Through their spiritual and practical relationships with the land, a rich heritage for our learning and our life as a community has been created and maintained. We recognize that the transition to a low-carbon future must be led by Indigenous Peoples and that there will be no justice unless we acknowledge and repair our relationship with the land.

We are committed to responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action and upholding the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and acknowledge that we are always learning and unlearning practices that minimize harm and lead to the development of trust between us and Indigenous Peoples across Nations and urban centers.
