Delia Warren, Worker Ambassador

P.Eng | MBA Student

Delia Warren (P. Eng.) is an Iron and Earth Worker Ambassador. From a young age, Delia was concerned by the adverse impacts of human activity on the environment and was convinced that transitioning to renewable energy would create a sustainable future for our planet and its people. She recognized that integrating renewables into our energy strategy would provide an incredible opportunity for economic development and job creation.

Graduating from Memorial University with a degree in mechanical engineering, Delia tried to find work in offshore wind generation but instead spent seven years working in the offshore oil and gas industry in Scotland, France, Africa and at home in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. Starting her career as a pipeline engineer in R&D she eventually transitioned into subsea and offshore structural design—skills that are highly transferable to the renewable energy industry. Following the oil downturn, she began volunteering at Iron & Earth East, eventually taking on the role of director in October 2016 and continuing as a Worker Ambassador now. She loves to travel and is currently completing an MBA at Memorial University.

Iron & Earth is committed to partnering with Indigenous workers to empower their communities to become self-sufficient in training programs, clean energy transition projects, and employment opportunities to combat environmental racism. It falls to all of us to continue the work of healing and reconciliation in our communities and our organizations. Our relationship with the land and the people who live here shapes who we are. It is in the spirit of reconciliation and honouring the past that we recognize treaties and agreements wherever they are and wherever we work.

We also acknowledge all peoples who live, work, and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
As individuals and teams we may make mistakes along the way, but we are dedicated to growth, openness, compassion, and forgiveness. These principles in our work are essential to building successful and healthy relationships with individuals, communities, organizations, and governments.

We look forward to building a path to lead us to a better relationship with Indigenous nations and the environment around us based on peace, friendship, and respect.
