Great to see Kate Gleason College of Engineering recognized for diversity and inclusion initiatives in the “inaugural diversity recognition program established by the American Society of Engineering Education.”
If more organisations took some notice of what Kate Gleeson College of Engineering are doing then perhaps we would have more diverse and inclusive workplaces than we currently do. It seems to me that they have a good diversity and inclusion program and are serious about making it a priority in their organisation.
By having diversity programs in place and have a a pledge to improve diversity and inclusion is a great to increase numbers on campuses such as Kate Gleeson College from “groups who are currently under-represented.”
By having more training on diversity and inclusion with the right guidance and support then you not only create more awareness on it as well as increase the chances of any diversity and inclusion programs in your organisation succeeding. Along with the right support from management and continued monitoring of the program along with accountability one can envisage a future where this will be a standard practice and the norm rather than the exception having diversity and inclusion programs that actually work and are successful.
