Session Abstract

As tenets of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility to STEM Education (IDEA) continue to be a foundation for the progression of engineering education worldwide, the World Engineering Education Forum (WEEF) developed this session to identify key concepts, evidence-based approaches, and a surveying overview of IDEA within the realm of STEM education and industry opportunities. Join Dr. Renetta Tull, Vice Chancellor of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion from the University of California Davis and Adj. Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering, and Dora Smith, Senior Director, Global Academic Program from Siemens and VP of D&I for IFEES, as they address sustainable strategies and best practices to ultimately make programs more inclusive, diverse, equitable, and accessible to all.

This session, supported by the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES) and the Global Engineering Deans Council (GEDC), will explore IDEA in the context of academia, industry, and student perspectives. With this diverse unveiling of global experiences, participants will learn how engineering can serve as a platform for social change.
