THE 50K COALITION

The 50K Coalition is Seeking the Help of the Professional Engineering Societies and Nonprofits within our Network to Create the Data Set Needed to Understand Better How to Retain and Graduate BIPOC and Women Engineering Students.

By submitting your programmatic data to the 50K Coalition, your professional engineering society or nonprofit will be entered into a drawing with the chance to win a $1000  donation to support your BIPOC and Women engineering efforts. 

A winner will be selected from all professional engineering societies and nonprofits that provided data by January 27, 2023.  

Dear Friend of The 50K Coalition: 

On behalf of the 50K Coalition’s Leadership Circle, we thank your organization for supporting the 50K Coalition.

The 50K Coalition is seeking the help of the community colleges, engineering schools, professional engineering societies, and nonprofit organizations within our 50K network to create the data set needed to understand better how to retain and graduate BIPOC and Women engineering students.

Researchers from the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES), and the Yoder and Yamashita Group have teamed up with the 50K Coalition’s Data Council to understand better how to retain and graduate BIPOC and Women students in engineering nationally.

The 50K Coalition is seeking your engineering society’s programmatic data to identify engineering society initiatives that help to engage and retain BIPOC and Women students in engineering. The data you provide will contribute to a more diverse engineering profession by codifying best practices of what works and empowering 50K Coalition members to scale up effective strategies. 

The Value Proposition For Engineering Societies of Providing Programmatic Data

  • What other engineering society organizations and related nonprofit programs are you aware of in this field?
  • How does your program help–or potentially leverage–the work of others in this field?

We don’t know the answers to these questions, and neither do you because no data set to answer these questions have existed until now.

By providing data to the 50K Coalition, you can leverage what’s already working within the 50K Coalition network and make informed decisions about how to fill the gaps within your existing programmatic efforts.

How to Submit Your Programmatic Data

Please click on the link below, where you can download instructions on submitting your data to the 50K Coalition, along with an FAQ regarding the submission and use of your data.  NOTE: Please forward the data collection templates to the appropriate personnel within your organization and submit your data no later than January 27, 2023.

In the meantime, If you have any questions regarding this data request, please contact Clif Morgan at cmorgan@50Kcoalition.org  or Gabriel Najera at gnajera@50kcoalition.org.

Sincerely,

Clif Morgan

Thank you for contributing to the 50K Coalition's Data Set!

The data you provide will help the 50K coalition analysis of what works to effectively engage, retain and graduate BIPOC and Women students in engineering nationally.
And contribute to more diverse engineering profession by codifying best practices of what works and empowering 50K Coalition members to scale up effective strategies.

The Promise of 50K

The Coalition will collaborate to create a comprehensive plan to change the public perception of engineering and encourage a diversified field of study, one that includes more women and members of other underrepresented groups.
