2020 Annual Conference Virtual Workshop (Conference Registration Required)
Open access session coming soon!
Friday, June 26, 2020
3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
This participant-focused session is for individuals who have already begun significant self- and organizational-work to grapple with concepts like diversity, equity, inclusion, and privilege and perhaps have begun to interrogate how dominant systems operate within our culture (engineering and larger) to maintain power structures. To be DEI advocates, we must also form a community to be able to talk about DEI issues. In order to empower those who wish to take a more active role in advocating DEI within their sphere of influence with tools, the focus of this session will be for participants to engage in deeper conversations, based on their own needs and experiences.
