U495E·SUNDAY WORKSHOP: The Inclusive Professional Framework: Supporting Equitable Faculty Practices in the Classroom, Lab, Institution, and Beyond
Workshop Sponsored Workshops
Sun. June 25, 2023 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM
Room 311, Baltimore Convention Center
Session Description

Free ticketed event
Excellence in engineering education requires an
institutional focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion
(DEI), which might include consideration of demographics (e.g., student, faculty, staff), recruitment and retention, the curriculum, institutional climate, etc. This session will introduce the Inclusive Professional
Framework (IPF), a research-informed, holistic,
professional development model created by Aspire, an
NSF Eddie Bernice Johnson INCLUDES Alliance.
The IPF enables department chairs and other
institutional leaders to consider their DEI-focused
policies, practices, and programs, and conduct a deeper examination of these departmental structural systems, to better promote sustained change.
Participants will apply the framework to their departmental DEI work in support of faculty developing inclusive practices.
