On June 16th, SEAONC SE3 will be hosting their first symposium in over 3 years! The theme this year is “The Past, Present, and Future of DEI in Structural Engineering.” We will highlight the committee’s previous work (including being the founding SE3 chapter and beginning the national survey), what the committee has done in the past couple of years, and explore some of the many avenues that both SE3 and the structural engineering community at large can focus on in the near future.
There will be a keynote presentation by SE3 founders and past chairs, followed by a session on the research that the SEAONC SE3 chapter has done over the past 3 years. Breakout sessions will include topics such as:
Additionally, a workshop will be held by the PEER Group on how to be an active ally in the workplace and there will be a panel discussion with the firm leaders who took part in the DEI Cohort program from 2021-2022.
Attending the symposium will make clear why SE3’s work, and DEI in general, should be of interest to absolutely everybody in the industry: because it touches everything that we do as structural engineers. You can learn more about the symposium and register here.
We would also like to wish everyone celebrating a joyful Juneteenth (June 19th), International Women in Engineering Day (June 23rd), and Pride Month!
