BWIS Lecture: Shifting Paradigms to Engineer Change in STEM, Today, 3/24, at 4 p.m.
March 24, 2022
As we face one global crisis after another, it is clear engineers will play an increasingly critical role in solving the incredibly complex challenges facing the world. To fully consider the impacts and consequences of our work on humans, ecosystems, and societies, we must come to the table with diverse perspectives and intentionality about how we grow the STEM talent pipeline.
On Thursday, March 24, at 4 p.m., tune in via Zoom to hear Sharon L. Walker, Dean of Drexel University’s College of Engineering and Distinguished Professor in the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering. She will speak on what it means to design and invest in the infrastructure of our future to create equitable and just communities.
This lecture, sponsored by Brookhaven Women in Science (BWIS), will focus on what it means to be committed to building an inclusive spirit of innovation, collaboration, and discovery for positive impact. It will also emphasize how to be truly proactive: advocating for others and ourselves; amplifying each other to ensure the voices of women and Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), and historically underrepresented groups (HUG) are respected and heard; shifting focus from quotas to strengthening professional development; and offering opportunities for leadership advancement through programs like Executive Leadership in Academic Technology, Engineering and Sciences (ELATES) at Drexel.
