Emily Lasso de la Vega will present a free talk titled “Exploring Diversity in the Classroom and the Boardroom” noon-12:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 26, via Zoom. Sign up online.
Lasso de la Vega is S&T’s diversity, equity and inclusion educator and advises S&T’s National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and Spectrum chapters. She will discuss ways that individuals and organizations can evaluate and explore personal biases and group cultures that contribute to or hamper a spirit of inclusion. She will provide attendees with tools to support students and co-workers from diverse backgrounds by creating a safe and inclusive place for learning and working. By learning to recognize personal biases and confronting them, attendees will be better equipped to ensure everyone in their circle of influence is treated equitably.
The Digital Lunch and Learn series is hosted by Missouri S&T Global Learning, which extends learning and training opportunities beyond the traditional classroom. For more information or to register for the presentation, visit global.mst.edu/lunch-learn.
