Please join us next Thursday, February 23rd for AIChE’s Black History Month event to celebrate Black excellence in Chemical Engineering and discuss the barriers to inclusion of Black communities in Engineering fields. Dr. Levi Thompson will virtually join us to discuss his journey through Chemical Engineering and topics regarding Black identity in Chemical Engineering. Dr. Thompson received his Ph.D. from Michigan and remained to be a professor of Chemical Engineering for multiple years. He is currently the Dean of the College of Engineering at the University of Delaware and has agreed to share his unique perspectives on Engineering education.
This event will be catered by a local black-owned business. Lunch will be served from 11:30am – 12:20pm in the EECS Atrium. This is followed by Dr. Thompson’s talk from 12:30pm – 1:20pm in EECS 1500. You must attend the talk in order to get lunch, we will be taking attendance to enforce this. NOTE: This event takes the place of our normal weekly luncheon and food will be served earlier than a normal week.
Also, please note that everyone is welcome to attend this event! You DO NOT need to be a member of AIChE or a Chemical Engineering major to attend. We hope to have attendance from students all across the college, so be sure to bring your friends! Please RSVP here (https://forms.gle/HDrLYC2L9hjWbE3X8) if you plan to attend.
