American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) – 2017
For this conference our team crafted a paper researchers could use to guide them through utilizing a conference or workshop to bring together experts from their field to contribute to critical conversations about emerging issues or efforts. In the paper, we outline the approach our team developed for engaging experts in the research and practice communities to contribute to rich conversations about inclusion in engineering. We also offer the materials we developed to help facilitate rich discussions among participants. Additionally, we created and presented a poster to share some details about the Who’s Not At The Table event we hosted October 2016.

Women in Engineering ProActive Network (WEPAN) Change Leader Forum – 2017
The team shared many of the lessons they learned while planning the WNATT event for making spaces and events more accessible and welcoming to diverse participants. In this fast-paced, 5 minute presentation we offered listeners advice for challenging traditional exclusionary meeting norms, encouraged listeners to reflect on interactions between social identities and privilege, and recommended some simple actions one could take to introduce more inclusive practices into their events.

National Science Foundation Engineering Education and Centers (NSF EEC) Grantees Conference, hosted by ASEE – 2017
The theme of the 2017 NSF EEC conference was increasing the impact of EEC programs. At this conference, our team engaged with other recipients of EEC awards to share the details about the WNATT project and how we engage the research and practice communities in our work by presenting a poster. We also explored new ways to increase the impact of the WNATT work.

The National Collaborative for Engineering Diversity (CoNECD) Conference – 2018
Our team was thrilled to attend the CoNECD conference and engage with others working to enhance inclusion of all underrepresented populations in the engineering and computing professions! We presented our work from the WNATT project and issued an invitation for members of the CoNECD community to join us in crafting and disseminating the research agenda.
