Doing a World of Good By Changing Perceptions
What inspired me to be an engineer was definitely the media. All the pictures were people who didn’t look like me: a black female chemical engineer. Change starts with me. — Royal Williams, Prairie View A&M University student
The world around us would be virtually unrecognizable without the positive contributions made by chemical engineers.
Yet there remains a significant gap between the good chemical engineers do and how the world perceives us and the innovative solutions we develop enhancing our society.
We are committed to safety and ethical pracice, and ensuring that there are no barriers to anyone, who wishes to become a chemical engineer, thereby cultivating an equitable, diverse and inclusive profession.
Since the campaign launched, the AIChE Foundation invested your gifts to work in the following ways:
- 210,545 views of What Chemical Engineers Do? on Youtube.
- 400+ Minority Affairs Community scholarships to traditionally under-represented students were awarded since inception.
