CoNECD – Collaborative Network for Engineering and Computing Diversity

1st Annual Conference of
Collaborative Network for Engineering and Computing Diversity
April 29-May 1
Arlington, Virginia

NAMEPA along with the Women in Engineering Pro-Active Network (WEPAN), the American Society for Engineering Education’s (ASEE) Women in Engineering Division (WIED), and the ASEE Minorities in Engineering Division (MIND) will host CoNECD: Collaborative Network for Engineering and Computing Diversity from April 29, 2018 to May 1, 2018 in Arlington, Virginia.

The vision of the CoNECD (pronounced, “connected”) Conference is to provide a forum for exploring current research and practices to enhance diversity and inclusion of all underrepresented groups in the engineering and computing professions. The Conference Organizing Committee believes that a transformation of our engineering workforce will not be the result of a singular focus. CoNECD will encompass the many diverse groups that comprise our engineering and computing workforce including groups based on gender (including gender identity and gender expression), race and ethnicity, disability, veterans, LGBTQ+, 1st generation and socio-economic status.
