Keeping Up the Good Work: Honoring 40 Years of Excellence in Diversity
December 3, 2021 at 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
This year marks the 40th anniversary of Penn Engineering’s diversity efforts and we invite you to join us on Friday, December 3, at 3:00 p.m. EST to celebrate Penn Engineering’s new Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI), formerly known as the Office of Minority Programs.
We plan to meet in Heilmeier Hall (Towne 100) from 3:00-3:30 p.m. for remarks and we will then move upstairs to 211 Towne to officially unveil and tour the brand new ODEI Suite.
The new suite that will be unveiled honors and builds upon the remarkable work of Ms. Cora Ingrum, ODEI’s former Director and her Administrative Assistant, Ms. Donna Hampton. Over the years, the office has been instrumental in identifying and retaining diverse engineering talent and helping students successfully transition into graduate and professional programs as well as productive professional careers. ODEI has a legacy of rich programs and partnerships with academia and industry that has continued to be strengthened under the leadership of Dr. Laura Stubbs, the current Director of ODEI.
