The ASME Diversity and Inclusion Strategy Committee is seeking two new members-at-large to serve on the committee beginning in June 2017.
About the Committee
Diversity and inclusion are ingrained within ASME’s mission, vision and core values. The Diversity and Inclusion Strategy Committee (DISC) is one of the mechanisms by which we ensure that we are progressing toward those ideals. ASME’s bylaws state that “The Diversity and Inclusion Strategy Committee … shall provide insight and advice into promoting diversity within ASME and mechanical engineering.” DISC reports up to the PA&O Council.
The Diversity and Inclusion Strategy Committee’s vision is to be the essential partner and resource for advising ASME leadership on US and global diversity and inclusion strategies.
Our mission is to develop diversity and inclusion strategies that:
As ASME is increasingly working in a global environment, striving to engage more student and early career engineers, and facing demographic shifts domestically, globally, and in the field of engineering, our efforts in diversity and inclusion are more essential than ever. The Diversity and Inclusion Strategy Committee’s efforts are focused both internally and externally.
About the Member-at-Large Positions
The Diversity and Inclusion Strategy Committee membership consists of a Chair, Immediate Past Chair, and six members-at-large serving staggered three-year terms. Members may choose to renew their term once, for a second three-year term. The committee meets face-to-face twice a year: at the International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Expo in November and at the ASME Annual Meeting in June. The Committee meets bi-monthly by phone, and subgroups of the committee may meet at other times, as needed.
If you are interested in being considered for one of the Member-At-Large positions, please send a letter of interest, along with your resume or CV, to Clare Bruff, Senior Manager, Executive Operations, at email@example.com. The letter should address the following:
All nominations must be received by Wednesday, May 3, 2017. If you have any questions, please contact Clare Bruff at firstname.lastname@example.org or (212) 591-8367.
