Diversity in Engineering (DivE) advocates for the retention, inclusion, and interests of systemically marginalized groups in engineering. Through research, programming, outreach, and promotion of best practices, we take an intersectional approach to achieve a supportive environment that fosters the growth and learning of all students. DivE offers a welcoming, educational, and supportive environment for students to meet like-minded peers and work towards a brighter future for engineering. Our main external events are panels where we talk to industry members about facets of identity, and internally we foster important conversations about self and engineering and host events to build community.
