The Inclusive Engineering Foundation (IEF) is dedicated to increasing diversity in engineering by fostering programs that increase the quantity and preparedness of African American, Hispanic, and Native American graduates in engineering fields with an additional emphasis on gender diversity.

The IEF was established in 2021 to fund programs and initiatives that bring together today’s leading minority serving institutions in academia, industry, and government while focusing on critical and impactful diversity initiatives.

The IEF supports a broad set of programs aimed to help attract and develop minority students in ECE programs.
