Speaker: Dr. Roger A. Green, North Dakota State University

This interactive workshop encourages and equips men to serve as effective allies for gender equity in STEM settings. To begin, we highlight data on the recruitment, retention, and advancement of women as well as the importance of institutional climate. Next, we present an overview of recent literature that helps explain why and how gender inequity occurs. Lastly, we introduce and develop concepts, vocabulary, actions, and practical skills to promote gender equity. The workshop is structured as an interactive conversation, with opportunit ...

Many diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts have traditionally focused on how we can equip individuals to overcome barriers that lead to inequitable experiences in engineering education. By solely relying on changing individuals to create more equitable outcomes, the underlying systemic root causes may be perpetuated. In this interactive workshop, participants will work through case studies that demonstrate how policies and practices within our educational structures can have differential effects on students based on their identities and identify solutions for systemic change. An expert panel w ... (continued)

Regardless of what organization or sector of business you work in, people must learn to effectively communicate with others to increase productivity and create engagement within teams. Business requires us to collaborate with people from different generations, cultures, and levels of experience, in a work environment where conflict is readily available.

Purpose: We all deal with conflict in one way or another, and it can easily be fueled by our style of communication. So, unless we have enough self-awareness around our tendencies, we are likely contributing to those interactions in a negative w ... (continued)

The many ideas that emerge from research in engineering face existential threats along the journey from reported finding to practical implementation and societal impact. In entrepreneurial terms, this gap is called the “Valley of Death” which lies between basic research/invention and delivery of the innovation. An analogous valley of death exists within diversity, equity, and inclusion work in engineering education. There is consensus that research exploration should be framed to make impact and educational practices should be informed by evidence. However, research performed may not hold apparen ...
