Dean Deluzio and Queen’s EngiQueers Co-President Ramsubick to discuss inclusivity in engineering education at provincial EDI forum

Posted on November 12, 2020


Dean Kevin Deluzio and Faculty of Engineering undergraduate Nicholas Ramsubick will headline this year’s Ontario Society of Professional Engineers diversity conference—the EDI Advantage—with a conversation about Queen’s Engineering and the challenges facing marginalized students.

The “Fireside Chat” discussion promises to explore ways institutions like Queen’s Engineering can move from a position of passive listening to meaningful change.

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science is a Presenting Sponsor of the conference, which will be hosted online this year.

In addition, the two-day event will feature panel discussions on recruiting talent, and pathways to leadership, as well as presentations on intercultural competence, and articulating allyship. Organizers anticipate over 5000 attendees over both days. See the full agenda.

OSPE’s The EDI Advantage will be held online November 26 and 27, each day from 9:30am through 1:30pm. The conversation between Dean Deluzio and Rambusick will begin at 9:45am on November 26 and will feature a live Q&A. Register here.

Originating in 2018 with It’s Time We Act, the OSPE EDI forum evolved in 2019 to The EDI Imperative: Changing the Profile of STEAM in Canada.
