Watch the full conversation, including a follow-up Q&A with conference delegates:

 

Dean Kevin Deluzio and Faculty of Engineering undergraduate Nicholas Ramsubick headlined 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 opening keynote, a “Fireside Chat” discussion, explored ways institutions like Queen’s Engineering can move from a position of passive listening to meaningful change.

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