NACRO has much in store over the coming months, while so many of us continue to work remotely. We hope you will join us for these sessions throughout the remainder of the year!
Panel Discussion: Industry and University Working Together to Promote Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Engineering through Imposter Syndrome Modules and Panels
Wednesday, May 5, 2021
2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. EST
In this session, we will share the story of a committee comprised of Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) members and engineering faculty focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion. In this committee, our vision is to work together to begin to cultivate more diverse, equitable and inclusive environments in engineering education and industry. During this session, we will first provide an overview of our committee and our committee’s activities, which include imposter syndrome panels that were offered throughout our engineering undergraduate curriculum in Spring 2021. Next, we will facilitate a panel discussion with industry and academic DNI committee members who will share their experiences on this committee, and their experiences envisioning and serving on imposter syndrome panels. As the culminating activity, we will transition into breakout rooms to discuss ideas of engaging IAB members and academics around issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. In these breakout rooms, attendees will develop strategies for bringing IABs and academics together to create more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environments in engineering education and industry and we will wrap up the session with ideas and strategies generated during the breakout group discussions.
