Putting research into action and being a role model for the next generation ignites culture change. Engineers of Tomorrow leader, Rebecca White, shares insights on how talking to kids differently about STEM professions can influence the way we think about it ourselves.

Event Abstract

Why is this diversity conversation important? Given our goal to effectively attract and retain diverse and talented individuals, we would like to know how to do it. We can trust in the science – in this case social psychology. Put into practice what has been discovered in scientific research. As STEM professionals, this is something we do everyday.

STEM professionals will benefit from a more diverse perspective make-up and help solve more complex problems. Reflecting on this will also help us serve our society better as we add equity and access to our work life. DEI conversations at the workplace are imperative for all STEM professionals to succeed and fulfill their mandate.
