Engineering for Everyone: Centering Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

At its core, engineering involves creative problem solving. Diverse groups of problem solvers are more likely to outperform homogeneous groups and derive the best solution. Yet, ensuring diverse groups in engineering is compromised by the persistent underrepresentation of members of racially minoritized groups and women, and the lack of equitable and inclusive environments to ensure their success. Centering diversity, equity and inclusion in the context of engineering for everyone has the capacity to effect meaningful change within our institutions and across higher education. This presentation will challenge assumptions, provide frameworks, apply inclusion lessons, and offer strategies for the future.
This event is co-sponsored by Postdocs for Diversity in Science and the Office of Academic Training and Outreach Programs.
