Disrupting Process to Dismantle Culture; with Dean Scott Ashford, Ph.D.
Most colleges and universities embrace the ideals of diversity, equity, and inclusion, but many fall short, especially in the hiring, retention, and advancement of faculty who would more fully represent our diverse world—in particular women of color and white women, and women and men from US historically disadvantaged populations.

Dean Scott Ashford, Ph.D., PE (CA), Kearney Dean of Engineering at Oregon State University, will discuss how the College of Engineering disrupted hiring practices and other traditional processes to shift the culture and create a more diverse and inclusive community.

In his five-year tenure as dean, Dr. Ashford has doubled the number of female faculty, now ranking Oregon State University #3 among all public R1 research universities for the percentage of engineering faculty who are women. Dr. Ashford was awarded the 2019 Society of Women Engineers Rodney D. Chipp Memorial Award for his efforts in supporting women in engineering.
