I may have mentioned to you that the College of Engineering and Battelle will be co-hosting the National Academy of Engineering’s Regional Meeting May 2-3. As part of the meeting, there will be a public symposium on Tuesday, May 3 focusing on the need for a diverse STEM workforce in the 21st century. We have a stellar lineup of diverse speakers, including Dr. France Córdova, Director of the National Science Foundation.
The event is free and open to the public, but participants must register. Additional details and online registration can be found at: https://engineering.osu.edu/events/2016/05/national-academy-engineering-public-symposium
I would appreciate it if you could distribute this to your colleagues, especially women and other diverse STEM faculty, staff and students. These speakers will no doubt be an inspiration to the up-and-coming generations that will transform our future workforce in the United States. I look forward to your participation and hope to see you there.
