Reengineering the Approach to DE&I in Established Organizations with Michael Johnson, ASME
Show Notes

Join the #EnvisionRISE podcast this week as we speak with Michael Johnson, Chief Strategy Officer of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Michael shares the evolution of ASME, beginning in 1880, into a worldwide 100K+ membership of professionals and students who develop standards with rapidly changing markets and technology and how that rapid change must also be addressed from the inside out, beginning with their people.

Join us as they discuss:

  • The focus on DE&I for the future of ASME and the engineering profession
  • How ASME as an international group is taking on new challenges and prioritizing diversity of thought throughout the organization
  • Changing the perception of DE&I and understanding that inclusion means everyone to create lifelong ASME employees and bring new talent
  • Michael's personal experiences as he urges others to bring awareness and sensitivity to every meeting they attend.
