In educational settings, racial discrimination affects educators, staff, and students of color, resulting in negative impacts including struggles to get equal recognition and opportunities, decreased funding, lower graduation rates, and mental health problems.

In light of recent events in the U.S., which have spotlighted the breadth, depth, and sometimes fatal consequences of institutional and individual racism on the Black community, ASEE convened a group of panelists, from K-12 to higher education, to discuss and share resources that can help engineering educators tackle racism in their classrooms and institutions, addressing the broader contexts in which engineering is practiced.
