Engineer Inclusion

Reading is a joy and pleasure for me, but when it comes to nonfiction, I often wish to chat with others to discuss what I am learning and hear their thoughts. Perhaps it’s a lost longing for an academic environment that fuels so many new ideas and growth, or it’s just a desire for community. So, whatever the case, will you join me?

If you are interested in reading more about diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice, we invite you to join the new Engineer Inclusion Reading Community.

Each month or so, we’ll feature a different book on my reading list and perhaps on yours, too! On this page, you can link to the reading list, learn what to expect, how to participate, and review the frequently asked questions.

WHAT TO EXPECT

On our virtual community network, we’ll have discussions, share ideas from what we are reading, and depending on participation, host monthly virtual conversations on each book.

The community will be a function of its contributors, so join us to help make it great! 

Check out the frequently asked questions below, and if you have a question that isn’t answered, please contact us!

How to join

  1. If you haven’t already, join the Engineer Inclusion Network, a private learning community with an easy-to-use browser and mobile app interface. 
  2. Under Learning Communities on the left navigation menu, join the Reading Community. 

How to participate

  1. We’ll post semi-regular discussion prompts on the current book. Respond with your ideas and reply to others.
  2. Based on the community participation for each book, we may host a live virtual discussion. We will post in the events section of the group. You can subscribe to the calendar, so you never miss an event, too.

F.A.Q.

Anyone is welcome to participate, regardless of job, affiliation, age, or experience. 

There is no cost to join or participate.

No, you don’t have to have any previous experience in a reading community.

No, you don’t have to read all of the books. You can join to glean nuggets from the (hopefully) lively community contributions.

Absolutely! You are welcome to post and share about any books you are reading related to diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice — or anything tangentially relevant to the community.

We chose them based on various factors, but primarily because they are sitting on the corner of Dr. Meagan Pollock’s desk. Engineer Inclusion does not necessarily endorse any of the books, and selected order is random.

We intended to start the book club in January, but the circumstances are that we are launching it in February. To keep the selection in the queue, we’ll double up one month, and June was selected at the outset. The timing is subject to change, though.

Great! Let us know what it is on the learning community. We may select it for next year, or a group of people may be interested in reading it with you, too.
