This Rwandan Engineer Is Learning How to Manage Humanitarian Projects
After several years of volunteering for IEEE humanitarian technology projects, Samantha Mugeni Niyoyita decided she needed more than just technical skills to help underserved communities become more self-sufficient.
To be successful, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) strategies require the ongoing support of the entire organization, as well as continued application of improvement. Below, please find resources on diversity, equity, and inclusion:
Diversity & Inclusion: Bringing Your Full Self to Work
Talk addresses what it is like being diverse and/or LGBT in engineering and STEM. Discussions are held on the importance of mental health, mentorship, and how inclusion practices can increase confidence and belonging.
The Role of Social Networks: Building Community
The need for community in STEM organizations, what community might look like for individuals from diverse backgrounds, and how to build diverse communities and best practices from the community that the Photonics Society has built.
How to Speak Up & Step Up: Advocate for Diversity
Tips and recommended best practices for advocating for equality and inclusion as either a member of the LGBTQIA+ community or as an ally.
