The Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) held a series of events for an annual celebration of diversity in STEM last week.
BRIDGE Week — which stands for Building Relationships, Increasing Diversity, and Growing Engineers — started in 2018 as a partnership between three organizations: the National Society of Black Engineers, Society of Women Engineers, and Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers.
The week’s events came roughly five months after SEAS released results from its 2022 climate survey, which found that roughly 21 percent of respondents said they have experienced harassment or discrimination. The figure was higher for respondents from historically marginalized racial and gender identities.
The survey also found that 36 percent of SEAS affiliates felt “inclusion and belonging” at the school, which was consistent with levels from 2018.
