Black Excellence – Industry Night
For Black History month NSBE hopes to celebrate all the Black engineers within and outside of the Ryerson community from industry professionals, historical figures, to our fellow Black classmates. So this February, we will be hosting our first ever “Black Excellence – Industry Night” to showcase successful Black exemplars in the engineering world, as well as a chance to personally connect with them. Additionally, we will be giving away an Amazon Echo to a lucky attendant, so be sure to tune in!
We invite all people of all backgrounds to join us to hear all of their stories, experiences, successes, and any advice they have to offer. We invite our fellow Black engineering students to be inspired, find your role model, embrace your uniqueness, and see how far you can go. We invite engineers from other backgrounds to abandon ignorance, but instead stay educated, inspired and woke about the experiences of your peers. It’s important to understand the challenges your peers face from intersectionality to microaggressions. With this, we can create an inclusive, diverse and equitable community within Ryerson Engineering. We hope to see you this Wednesday, February 10th at 6:30pm where you can learn, understand and know what Black Excellence truly means.
