Leveraging the ASEE and SEFI Joint Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: A Call and Pledge for Action
ASEE and the European Society for Engineering Education just issued a statement committing the organizations to increasing the participation, inclusion, and empowerment of minoritized individuals in all engineering venues. You can view the statement here.
This is a recording of a conversation with some of the authors as we considered: How can we use this statement as a springboard to launch disruptive and intentional change?
The session began with a brief overview of the statement by one or more of the authors, and then we broke into small groups to brainstorm ideas, then we came back together and began to make a plan for action.
