Counts toward CIRTL Cert. Diversity and Inclusion.

On Thursday, 18 February 2021, from 9 to 10am, the American Society of Engineering Management (ASEM) and UMBC are hosting a fireside chat on Product Inclusion with Annie Jean-Baptiste, author of Building for Everyone: Expand Your Market with Design Practices from Google’s Product Inclusion Team. In her talk, she'll discuss how to build inclusive products across the intersections of 12 dimensions of diversity. She is passionate about making the web work for under-served communities while ensuring that Google is a place where everyone shines for their differences. Following her talk, we will host a group discussion exploring Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE/I) in the design and management of critical technological systems.
