Civil & Environmental Engineering : Diversity and Anti-Racism in Engineering

Getting Started

This list of resources and organizations is intended to support the College of Engineering's work to support diversity, inclusion, equity and justice in our communities and practices.

The list is not comprehensive, and the resources inevitably reflect the biases of the various creators. They are intended to provide a starting point to explore the wide variety of resources within the Engineering and STEM communities. This page will be continuously updated and feedback is welcome! If you're looking for more resources or for something different, please reach out to Jodi Bolognese at

For more anti-racism resources in STEM fields, please check out our Diversity and Anti-Racism in STEM page.

For more anti-racism resources and ways to get involved at Northeastern and beyond, please check out our Anti-Racism guide.

For more diversity resources please check out our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging guide, which includes LGBTQIA+, disability and neurodiversity, socio-economic issues, race, culture and ethnicity, women and gender, religion and spirituality and more.
