Expanding the Picture of Success

Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor Tokunbo Ogunfunmi, advisor for the student chapter of National Society of Black Engineers, recently launched a new speaker series that will help underrepresented students envision their own career success.

 "It can be a challenge to envision your own career success when you don’t see leaders in your field who look like you," said Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor Tokunbo Ogunfumni. To help bring that image of success into focus, Ogunfunmi created a new speaker series that launched this spring.

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Distinguished Lecture Series shines a light on what’s possible and inspires the next generation of STEM professionals with quarterly presentations by successful underrepresented engineering leaders. Guest lecturers from industry, academia, and research share their experience of overcoming obstacles and lessons learned throughout their careers and offer their thoughts on how to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEM.
