BRIDGE Week

Building Relationships, Increasing Diversity, and Growing Engineers

BRIDGE Week is an annual event to recognize the importance of diversity in STEM, discuss current challenges, and learn how to foster a safe and welcoming STEM environment for all backgrounds and identities. This initiative started 2018 as a collaboration between the National Society of Black Engineers, Society of Women Engineers, and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers. The BRIDGE Banquet is the cornerstone event of the week. Student leaders select a SEAS alum that has made an impact on society and paved the way for future generations of engineers.
