This workshop will encourage participants to examine their own assumptions and biases that impact their understanding of others. We will explore diversity and inclusion from a perspective of full inclusion. If academia were to work toward a goal of full inclusion, what would be the role of male educators as full partners with people of color and women to achieve that goal?
This workshop is envisioned as a two-hour plenary that is open to all conference attendees. A partnership of WEPAN, the ASEE Women in Engineering Division and other ASEE Divisions and Councils are envisioned as partners in this session, along with a a consulting organization called White Men as Full Diversity Partners.
