Conversations on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) in Engineering
Wednesday, February 10, 2021 (4:00 PM - 5:00 PM) (EST)
Workplace and Industry Culture: Developing a plan for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) in Engineering
The Engineering industry is committed to bringing a diverse and talented workforce at ranging career levels. ACEC Virginia will aid firm efforts to build this commitment in firms by sharing actionable items and strategies to provide equity for all. The DE&I in Engineering Task Force will provide firms a place to have the discussion, build corporate social plans in DE&I, and ensure workplaces attract and retain the best talent. Common themes in DE&I include:
- Pay Equity
- Gender Diversity
- Representation of Ethnicities
- Religion, belief, and spiritually
- Sexual orientation
- Veteran status
- Data and accountability
Please join us on Wednesday, February 10, for an afternoon session to discuss these areas of concern and how we can improve DE&I in the Engineering industry. Our goal is to identify the needs and areas of concern, address and review best practices affecting DE&I, create business objectives, and create strategic plans to support the initiative. The group is open to all members, and members of all career development points are strongly encouraged to participate. Please join this grassroots effort as we develop another valuable resource for ACEC Virginia members.
*This is a free ACEC Virginia members-only event.
