At our most recent governance meeting, the ABET Board of Directors reaffirmed its commitment to ABET’s principles of diversity and inclusion.

To advance this commitment, the Board also voted to adopt a set of goals recommended by ABET’s Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Advisory Council regarding overall ABET operations, volunteers, staff and accredited programs. The goals are as follows:

  • To advance diversity, equity and inclusion principles across ABET operations.
  • To improve representation, participation and engagement of volunteers.
  • To recruit and retain a diverse group of ABET staff and foster an inclusive and equitable work environment.
  • To prepare students to succeed in and contribute to a diverse global workforce and workplace environment.

“We are always striving for continuous improvement, and establishing and affirming these goals is an important next step to strengthen our efforts regarding diversity, equity and inclusion,” said ABET President William J. Wepfer.
