Tipping the balance for Black engineering

A new report by the CEW and APLU says it would take 256 years for Black engineers to balance positions with those held by White and Asian workers.

“It shouldn’t take decades or centuries to ensure diversity in the engineering workforce mirrors diversity in society,” said Peter McPherson, president of the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities. “This report makes clear that Black and Latinx individuals are underrepresented and underpaid in the engineering workforce. It will take a comprehensive, committed, and innovative approach from employers and universities to close the gap.”
