Join us for our first twitter chat during the #EngineersShowUp Week of Critical Action and Advocacy! February 26, 2020, at 3 PM Central
Changing Cultures of Oppression in Engineering
We want to challenge the stereotype of the apathetic engineer and show up in solidarity with one another to challenge inequitable cultures in engineering. We want to show the world that #engineersshowup against racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, and other forms of oppression. We want to focus our actions on resisting systemic injustice. See the linked JEE guest editorial to learn more, or visit the movement website.
About Twitter Chats
If you’ve never Twitter chatted before, don’t worry; it’s very easy. First, get a Twitter account if you don’t already have one, and log in. Type #EngineersShowUp into the search box on Twitter at the start time. Thereafter all the tweets with the hashtag #EngineersShowUp will show up on your Twitter page. To participate, simply express your opinion by sending a tweet, and be sure to append the hashtag #EngineersShowUp so other members of the Twitter Chat see you are posting. Alternatively, automate the hashtag search and append feature by using the free service Tchat at http://www.tchat.io/.
This twitter chat is hosted by the American Society for Engineering Education Committee on Diversity Equity and Inclusion Professional Development team. The first chat will be led by Dr. Meagan Pollock, with guest hosts Dr. Stephanie Adams (ASEE President), PhD Candidate Brianna Benedict, and Dr. Jacqueline El Sayed.
