Conference on Diversity in Engineering
Conference on Diversity in Engineering (CDE)
November 9th-12th, 2018
Application Deadline: Friday, September 28th at 5:30pm
CDE aims to encourage discussion and collaboration between engineering students and professionals around the theme of diversity in engineering. Previously known as the National Conference on Women in Engineering (NCWIE), CDE aims to develop knowledge surrounding the variety of individuals, cultures and perspectives found within engineering communities. CDE further aims to instill a notion of positivity and togetherness in creating spaces that value the differences between groups of engineering students and professionals. Delegates will not only leave the conference with a solid understanding of the issues minorities encounter in the engineering profession, but they will also be equipped to appropriately address these issues to create a more inclusive and thriving community.
Students attending CDE will have the opportunity to meet and hear from successful, interesting, and talented speakers prepared to share their experience and knowledge on how to embrace diversity in order to better address the complex, interdisciplinary problems of society. This conference is held in November and CDE 2018 is being hosted by Ryerson University and will be held from November 9-12 in Toronto, ON
