We believe in fostering a more inclusive and diverse CSE community. But to achieve this, we need a collective effort. Here’s a unique opportunity to voice your perspectives and be a part of shaping the future!

Agenda Highlights:

  • DEI Committee Overview by Prof. Nikola Banovic: Delve into our core values, ongoing efforts, and the intricate facets of admissions, climate, and student well-being. 
  • Research Lab Perspective with Prof. Rada Mihalcea: Understand how DEI plays a role in research, setting the tone for its significance.
  • Student Organization Perspectives: Join Madelyn Gatchel from CSEG to learn about DEI initiatives for graduate admissions and recruitment. Postdoc Oana Ignat will speak about her initiative, the LaUNCH Your Confidence workshop as well.
  • Department Support: Magda Calvillo will share about her coaching initiatives focused on graduate student personal and professional growth in a diverse and supportive community.

The event will culminate in a 45-minute Round Table Discussion with coach Magdalena Calvillo, VoiCSEs representatives, and speakers. Engage, question, and share your thoughts on DEI Committee initiatives, research, and student organization endeavors.
