ASEE envisions widespread, inclusive, and equitable environments in engineering, academia, and industry that embrace individual differences and leverage diversity for a better engineered tomorrow.
To increase visibility and discussion of diversity issues.
To help develop inclusive and pervasive environments for all engineers to thrive.
To facilitate and encourage use of translatable strategies that enable both bottom up and top down empowerment.
We are guided by four key values and priorities, each of which has five objectives. Every objective is assigned to a committee or team, indicated in the third column. Each committee/team will articulate its annual strategy (measurable goals and priorities that support each objective) by Sep 1 each year for accountability.
We partner with ASEE groups to assess and implement equitable and inclusive policies and practices that advance ASEE’s vision, mission, values, and goals.
