Development of an EDI.I Competency Framework for Engineering Programs
Cariad Knight (firstname.lastname@example.org) and PHAS Equity & Inclusion Committee (email@example.com)
*All are welcome to this event!*
How are concepts of equity, diversity, inclusion and Indigeneity (EDI.I) taught and assessed in applied sciences?
Why is the teaching of these concepts important for engineers and scientists and how can competency level be meaningfully assessed?
Come to listen, learn, and discuss these questions and more in this month’s EDI in PHAS Journal Club! Jessica Wolf is a 2nd year MASc student in Mechanical Engineering and will lead our discussion on her work to develop an Equity Competency Model for UBC’s Faculty of Applied Sciences. Jessica’s work is inspired by the Valley Competencies (pp. 8-16
of linked journal article) and looks to translate such frameworks into applied sciences.
