2021 IEC Annual Report - Page 2

A Letter from the President

Dear IEC Community,

There is a critical need in the US for more qualified engineering and tech graduates to meet workforce demand and growth. However, minority engineering talent is often untapped while

the minority serving institutions are under-resourced.


The Inclusive Engineering Consortium (IEC) has made great strides in building its community of academic, government, and industry partners to drive forward its mission to ensuring a future of diversity, inclusion, and equity throughout engineering.

This year, our organization expanded our membership by welcoming several new historically minority serving institutions, including our first tribal college and university members.

Our partnerships have furthered our efforts to equip a diverse engineering workforce for the

future by leveraging the talents and resources of minority serving institutions and improving graduation rates of minorities in engineering.

We are pleased to share our 2021 programs and activities. Each of these initiatives have been designed to increase both the quantity and preparedness of minority students in engineering.

We appreciate your continued support in making a better, more inclusive world!

Best regards,

Craig Scott
