Abstract:  What it means to be inclusive is the subject of recent books, articles, conferences, podcasts, and radio programs.  Additionally, the word “inclusion” has been woven into organizational value statements of late; indeed, NSF reports that the Engineering Research Centers have inclusive cultures. What does being inclusive mean, and how does leadership play a role?  This presentation will begin to address these topics as an introduction to the learning series titled, “Inclusive Leadership in Engineering.”
