The Diversity Committee mission is to advocate for inclusion and advancement of women and minorities in the structural engineering community, raise awareness about the challenges they face in the professional workplace, and propose solutions through worker-friendly, equitable policies.
Our vision is a more diverse and inclusive community with better collaboration in the workplace and longer-term employee retention. We hold events and provide resources for our membership to support these goals.
These goals are in line with the SEAoNY mission statement “to advance the art of structural engineering in New York by improving the flow of ideas and building the community of colleagues.” A community that works together and is inclusive will benefit from the best and brightest engineers when their voices are heard, their contribution is respected, and their potential is valued. A diverse and inclusive structural engineering community will be most effective and productive in the interest of advancing the field.
The Structural Engineering Engagement and Equity (SE3) Committee was originally a committee within the Structural Engineers Association of Northern California (SEAONC) whose mission is to study engagement and equity in the structural engineering profession in order to provide meaningful input on improving both of these metrics within the industry.
