August 13, 2020 - Invitation to Self-Nominate for the D&I Committee and/or Sounding Board

星力捕鱼-星力捕鱼app斯坦福部门邀请工程机械社区的所有成员参与制定,实施和举措持续改进创造一个多样化的,公正,包容所有的环境,特定的重点是解决系统性的影响我们社区的反种族主义的黑色。我们鼓励星力捕鱼在星力捕鱼-星力捕鱼app,产品设计或生物力学工程,研究生部门M.S.专业参与或博士学位程序,博士后和工作人员(学术,研究,技术和行政)谁是致力于了解的种族主义历史和现实根源,并努力改变这种延续种族主义的系统。我们寻求自我提名为两个重要的群体:

The 星力捕鱼-星力捕鱼app Diversity & Inclusion Committee

The D&I Committee will identify specific actions and activities to create a more just and equitable ME community around, for example, student and faculty recruitment and retention. D&I Committee members will engage with and support student organizations promoting community and inclusion, participate in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion activities across 斯坦福, and regularly update the broader ME community on Committee discussions and actions. Formation of the committee is just a first step, and an important role of this initial Committee will be to establish long-term practices to ensure the continued viability of the Committee itself and an ongoing process for departmental improvement. The Committee will meet bi-weekly, and members will be expected to commit 2-4 hours/week to this effort on an ongoing basis. Committee members are expected to participate for at least one year.

Initial steps in the formation of the D&I Committee involved appointment of Sheri Sheppard and Arun Majumdar as co-chairs and recruitment of faculty and staff participants. As we begin this journey, we seek self-nominations from students, postdocs, and additional staff who wish to join this core departmental committee.

The 星力捕鱼-星力捕鱼app D&I Sounding Board

We envision the D&I Sounding Board as a larger body, also with representation across the department, that gives periodic feedback to the D&I Committee on its activities and initiatives and helps to engage the department as a whole in this process. The D&I Committee will provide quarterly progress reports/presentations to the Sounding Board, and the Sounding Board will provide advice and feedback to the D&I Committee. The Sounding Board will ensure that the D&I committee considers a broad range of perspectives and experiences. Membership on the D&I Sounding Board involves a smaller time commitment (1-2 meetings per quarter), than the D&I Committee, but its role is equally important.

We envision the D&I Committee and Sounding Board as embodying the wide variety of opinions and perspectives of our department; a membership of creative problem-solvers who voice their ideas and concerns with respect, listen with empathy, and are eager to learn from each other and make progress in addressing these important issues.

自荐到一个或两个小组应提交 通过星期一8月31日(下午11点59 PT) via the ME D&I Committee & Sounding Board Self-Nomination web-form.  该表格要求被提名人来形容:
• their motivation for serving on the D&I Committee and/or Sounding Board,
•与多样性和包容性的任何以往的经验或训练,
•他们希望怎样有助于委员会或传声筒,
•什么样的措施成功的看起来像在创造一个更加多样化的,公正,包容,公平的星力捕鱼-星力捕鱼app社会,
• any questions (or concerns) about the ME D&I Committee or Sounding Board.

We anticipate selecting 4-6 students for the D&I Committee to ensure that undergraduate and graduate students in the department's multiple programs have voices related to the Committee's central work on equity. Student participation will be recognized with an honorarium. Nominations will be reviewed to select student and staff representation to ensure that the ME D&I and Sounding Board teams broadly represent the experiences in the department. Nominations will be reviewed by a panel consisting of:

  • Lourdes V. Andrade, Director of Equity & Inclusion Initiatives, School of Engineering
  • 教授。布赖恩·布朗,教育研究生院
  • 教授。埃伦·库尔,星力捕鱼-星力捕鱼app系主任

August 2, 2020 - Formation of the D&I Committee and next steps

亲爱的星力捕鱼app星力捕鱼-星力捕鱼app社区:

在我的社会走到了一起6月11日的市政厅会议,讨论在星力捕鱼app星力捕鱼-星力捕鱼app系种族不平等,抗黑种族主义和黑人学生分享经验和工作人员。

花了许多巨大的勇气在我们的黑人社区发言。它导致了更广泛的承认,我们不能让这个时刻传球,而我们需要更广泛地识别和地址反黑种族主义和偏见,以及歧视和偏见,在各部门的互动和政策。

Following the Town Hall meeting and discussions thereafter, the ME Department formed a Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Committee, which we have the honor & responsibility to co-chair. We acknowledge that too much time has passed since June 11th in communicating with you about actions that have been initiated; we were reminded of this last week when a group of ME students sent us, and the faculty-membership of the D&I committee, a powerful email asking for transparency and communications of committee activities.

与此消息,我们要开始与你的委员会活动的几个项目,沟通分享。 

我们都知道的事实,没有快速解决的反黑人种族主义和多样性和包容性,广泛的问题。有摆在我们面前的一个漫长的道路,我们必须共同和公开采取共同理解的经验和抗黑种族主义的根源,是开放的新思路和解决方案,以解决存在的问题,落实行动计划解决这些问题,并制定标准来评估他们的成功。 

我们要开始显山露水,作为第一步,我们希望与您我们采取了初步措施份额,并有一些什么的直接后续步骤。

Our most urgent activity is related to committee membership.  We need to have students and staff join the D&I committee; these voices are essential to success, and we are in the final stages of drafting the "Call for Self-Nominations."  Key to transparency in selection, we are working with some of our students to develop criteria for identifying the students who could join the D&I committee.  We will soon be sending out an open invitation to students and staff to self-nominate themselves. Finally, we also plan to include someone professionally trained to address racial injustice to be part of the committee.

While the D&I committee will be of limited size, its work will require a broader range of voices and perspectives for its deliberations and goal setting. Therefore, we will form a Sounding Board as well, which will play advisory and accountability roles to the D&I committee.

The D&I committee, composed of students, staff and faculty, needs to first listen and understand the experiences and solicit ideas for potential solutions. This will require many meetings with all our stakeholders, and we plan to share the schedule with all of you. 

在该委员会的教职员工迄今洋接触了星力捕鱼app和同行机构等部门,找出别人怎么做。我们计划定期这些跨委员会的互动,并探讨我们是否可以利用和适应最佳实践,其他人可能已经产生,反之亦然。

最后,所有的这些信息将很快成为我司网站,该网站会定期更新,以让您了解并行走。

我们感谢您的参与和耐心,我们期待着与你在未来的这个极其重要的问题的工作。我们有充分的信心,我们可以做出“星力捕鱼-星力捕鱼app”星力捕鱼app的地方,所有的学生,教职员工蓬勃发展,并致力于消除反种族主义的黑色。我们在制定短期和长期目标,并获取有关工作,以实现这些目标我们的拼搏进取。我们可以和必须做到这一点。

请随时分享通过任何想法,问题,问题或建议,与我们 D&I Committee Feedback Form.

真诚,
Sheri & Arun
on behalf of the D&I Committee
