Guide to Fostering Diversity in the Civil Engineering Workforce
Diversity by Design: Guide to Fostering Diversity in the U.S. Civil Engineering Workforce provides practical, hands-on suggestions for how to foster, improve, and maintain a diverse and thriving workforce within the civil engineering profession. The book is entirely relevant in the currently changing national demographic, where increasing global competition, the demand for new talent, and the need for diversity in the civil engineering profession has become increasingly important.
Content in this book highlights the aspects of the current civil engineering workplace that are not conducive to diversity. The manual then provides suggestions for improvement. These suggestions are based on “lessons learned” from individuals and organizations in the profession who have experience in successfully creating a more diverse workplace.
This manual is intended to compliment the Guide to Hiring and Retaining Great Civil Engineers (ASCE Manuals and Reports on Engineering Practice No. 103), and is an invaluable resource for all organizations, associations, and employers involved in the civil engineering profession. 70 pp. Topics discussed include:
- Diversity: Why It’s Important to the Civil Engineering Profession
