AIChE’s 2014 Gala celebrated excellence in advancing diversity in the engineering profession. Honorees and their companies were recognized for their distinguished leadership in strengthening diversity in the workplace. The 2014 Gala raised funds for the Institute’s continued efforts to promote diversity in the chemical engineering workforce.
AIChE seeks to advance diversity through K-12 outreach programs, efforts of its Minority Affairs and Women’s Initiatives committees, through local sections and student chapters and competitions, and in countless other ways.
AIChE's Diversity Statement
Diversity means, on a global basis, creating an environment in the Institute and the profession in which all members, regardless of sex, race, religion age, physical condition, sexual orientation or nationality are valued equitably for their skills and abilities, and respected for their unique perspectives and experiences.
Inspiring and Empowering Women in Engineering
Recognizing companies and their leaders for inspiring and empowering women in engineering.
Funds raised will underwrite the expansion of women’s leadership programs, improve pre-college STEM education for girls and advance retention programs for women engineering undergraduates, graduate students, and young professionals.
