The mission of Engineering Change Lab – USA (ECL-USA) is to be a catalyst for change within the engineering community, helping it reach its highest potential on behalf of society. In 2021 ECL-USA continued its work in exploring the most important and complex issues impacting the future of engineering. Summit 11 focused on engineering’s role in the challenge of climate change. Summit 12 examined the future of private sector engineering firms. The second edition of the Engineering Ideas Institute represented our return to in-person events with a focus on Engineering in an Age of Acceleration and Engineering and Racial Justice. We also initiated work on two focused initiatives that resulted from discussions at our summits – the Future of Licensure initiative and the Climate Change Noble Purpose for Engineering initiative. A third initiative related to engineering and racial justice is under consideration. In addition, we ramped up our efforts to share our message and our work with the Engineering Community through 17 presentations to engineering organizations across the country. We thank those who have supported our work in any way.
2021 was another remarkable year, with the momentous events of the year offering opportunities to build on the learning from our work this year and in past years…. Read More
