Solutions to 21st century problems require innovation and creativity. These are accelerated through diverse teams and by ensuring that spaces are inclusive. This course focuses on inclusion in the academic setting — providing an overview of why inclusion in engineering matters and the role of unconscious bias in academia.
Key definitions and concepts will be presented to lay a foundation. Then, through a series of mock scenarios, you’ll learn how to both recognize and mitigate unconscious bias — a first step toward becoming inclusion conscious and creating an inclusive space in STEM and engineering communities.
