The year 2014-2015 was declared by ASEE as the Year of Action in Diversity.

In the PDF document here, you will see deans of engineering across the United States committing, through specific actions, to provide increased opportunity to pursue meaningful engineering careers to women and other underrepresented demographic groups. Specifically they commit to ensuring that our institutions provide educational experiences that are inclusive and prevent marginalization of any groups of people because of visible or invisible differences. We affirm the importance of such aims as a reflection of our core values, as a source of inspiration for drawing a generation to the call of improving the human condition. Recognizing the urgency to act, the signatories commit to establishing at each of our institutions a variety of programs, detailed further in this letter.

The document was initiated following the EDI of April 14, 2015 in South Carolina and was created by the EDC Diversity Committee, chaired by Dean Yannis Yortsos, Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California. It was presented on August 4, 2015 at the first-ever White House “Demo Day,” which showcased the wide-ranging talents of technology innovators from across the country.
