Sneha Sinha, from Oregon State University, and Carlos Garza, from the University of Texas at Arlington, were two of four students leading a panel session on diversity at the IISE Annual Conference & Expo 2019 in May. A full room of attendees with passionate voices expressed their opinions and concerns about ongoing issues surrounding equity and inclusion. What challenges lie ahead for people of color beginning their ISE careers? What can IISE and its members do to push the discussion into action? Will industry do more to recognize the value of diversity in the future? Sneha and Carlos talk about these topics in this episode with IISE's David Brandt.
