Diverse Engineering: A Podcast

To commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Increasing Diversity in Engineering Academics (IDEAs) program in 2020, The University of Akron (UA) launched a podcast series featuring engineering leaders of color in Akron and will reinforce the importance of getting underrepresented populations a seat at the table. 

Our next episodes will feature exceptional women in engineering. UA's Women in Engineering Program was launched to encourage more women to become engineers. We help curious, creative, and hard-working women pursue their dreams of making the world a better place ― through the science of engineering.

Upcoming Episodes: Releasing October 2021!
