ENgage with us!

Humanizing Engineering: Evolving the Status Quo

Friday, March 29   •   11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Join us in person at the Natural Resources Building, Room 345.
We will provide a catered lunch available at 11:30 a.m. - session will begin at noon.

In this interactive workshop, we will explore how engineering faculty can shift toward using a sociotechnical lens when teaching engineering curricula (humanizing engineering within the boundaries of current culture). The session will challenge faculty and staff to consider their own positionality and reflect upon how they have experienced and/or engaged with engineering’s exclusionary culture in the past.

The ENgage series features seminars and workshops to enhance the visibility of diverse scholars, scientists, engineers, and educators working on equity and inclusion.  

Goals of the ENgage series

The series has been created in part to prepare students for engineering and scientific professions where diversity is valued and inclusion is expected. Incidences of racial violence and social injustice across the country – and at CSU – have only heightened this need.

Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to advance their knowledge of diversity, equity, and inclusion and to learn actions they can take to co-create an inclusive and equitable college community.

The series will feature leaders who can speak to issues of systemic racism and social justice, and steps we can take to change this system; educate students, staff, and faculty; and co-create a more inclusive community.

Enhance the visibility of diverse scholars, scientists, engineers, and educators working on equity and inclusion.

Promote and advance a culture of inclusiveness within the College.
 

Develop cultural competency of all students, staff, and faculty.
