2019 Symposium Overview

The SE3 National Symposium: Engagement and Equity in the Structural Engineering Profession

This half-day program is the first Structural Engineering Engagement and Equity (SE3) Symposium to be held in conjunction with a national engineering conference, the 2019 NCSEA Summit at the Disneyland® Hotel in Anaheim, California.


As part of this program, attendees will participate in three separate sessions focused on various aspects of engagement, retention, diversity and inclusion. They will learn more about findings from the 2018 SE3 survey, hear from industry panelists on the state of our profession, and acquire practical strategies and best practices for improving retention within their organizations.

Check out our Testimonials page to hear what attendees thought of past SE3 events.
