Globally Diversifying the Workforce in Science and Engineering (1999)


To remain competitive in this global and technological world, academic institutions and corporations worldwide need to take serious steps to created a diverse, well-trained and multicultural workforce. To this end, the Global Alliance in Science and Engineering for Diversifying the Workforce was created to offer an opportunity to share best practices in education, industry, government and professional associations from different countries and provide technical assistance to groups looking for successful models. It also offers an opportunity for industry to continue influencing academic institutions to produce a diverse group of graduates. Further, it will create opportunities for new ways of thinking and new perspectives about science and engineering professions by the voices of people not traditionally targeted for science and engineering careers.
