This special session is based on work we are undertaking in our NSF-funded Revolutionizing engineering and computer science Departments (RED) project. We will share our innovative and ongoing efforts to construct an inclusive curriculum, motivated by two goals: to help students develop their knowledge, skills and dispositions to engineer inclusively and to embed inclusive practices in our department, courses, and research labs. Participants will be exposed to new ways to think about, measure, and increase inclusion in engineering departments, classrooms, and research labs. This workshop is intended for a broad audience of engineering educators (e.g., faculty, academic advisors, curriculum designers, instructional developers, etc.). Given the breadth and importance of interpersonal interactions that engineers encounter in their educational and professional careers, the topics central to this session are of significance to engineering education. Material for this session is based on our NSF-funded project, Transforming for Inclusion: Fostering Belonging and Uniqueness in Engineering Education and Practice.1
