A Statement of Solidarity with AAPI Community
from IEC's Leadership
The Inclusive Engineering Consortium condemns the abhorrent violence against Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community members.
The IEC stands in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities in denouncing the racially motivated attacks against Asian Americans taking place across the nation and especially the recent mass shooting targeting Asian women.
The horrific shootings in Atlanta, Georgia on March 16, 2021 that claimed the lives of eight people, six of whom were of Asian descent and seven of whom were women, exemplify the intersectional oppression that so many minoritized people face: racism, misogyny, classism and beyond.
We are compelled by our mission to treat everyone with equity and respect, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, sex, gender identity or orientation, age, disability, citizenship status or national origin. Our ECE community will be inclusive and not shy away from uncomfortable conversations.
The Inclusive Engineering Consortium is committed to develop and deliver the programs, resources, and infrastructure to achieve our goals for a more just, equitable, diverse, and inclusive society.
