    Navigating the PE Exam - How ASCE Can Help

    Date: Thursday, June 22, 2017 | 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time
    Register for webinar

    Civil Engineers who aspire to practice and grow in the profession need to take the licensure exam. Much of the PE exam builds upon undergraduate academic studies. Many if not most engineers rapidly specialize within their field after leaving academia. This makes it difficult to prepare for the exam, and even harder to select a trainer vendor to prepare with.

    ASCE has been offering Live Review Exam preparation over 12 years, and holds a record of 90% pass rate for individual attendees. Through this webinar, we hope to reach potential PE candidates, and provide them insights into how ASCE Live Review Exam course can help in preparing and passing the exam. 

    Attendees will learn about NCEES resources, and information on ASCE Live Exam Review Courses.

    Presenter:  J.P. Mohsen, Ph.D., F.ASCE


    IDENTIFYING AND ADDRESSING SUBTLE BIASES IN THE WORKPLACE 

    Date: Thursday, June 29, 2017 | 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time
    Register for webinar

    Microaggressions are brief, every day exchanges that send denigrating messages, whether intentional or unintentional, to certain individuals because of their group membership. Many microaggressions are so subtle that neither the target nor perpetrator may entirely understand what is happening. Research studies have found that the process of encountering microaggressions can be psychologically and physically draining, often leading to higher levels of stress, lower job satisfaction, and poor mental health outcomes. This webinar will help participants learn how to identify microaggressions, understand their impact, and respond appropriately when they occur.

    Presenter: Joseph M. Williams, Ph.D.


    FINANCIALLY SURVIVING A DISABILITY

    What could possibly happen to keep me from working?
    The word disability often triggers thoughts of broken bones, casts, and wheelchairs. Total Disability—prevented by illness or injury from performing the material and substantial duties of your usual occupation, provided you are not otherwise working for pay or profit—is not limited to bodily injury. Here’s the reality of disabilities that could keep you from returning to work, whether you want to or not:

    • Illnesses such as cancer and heart disease cause a majority of long-term absences.
    • Back and spine injuries can cause intense pain, requiring rest and minimal movement.
    • Included among disability claims are neurological, hearing, and vision impairments as well as blood and respiratory disorder.

    Overcoming Unconscious Bias in the Workplace - Part 1

    Date: Thursday, July 27, 2017 | 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time
    Register for webinar

    Our exposure to cultural assumptions and stereotypes give rise to our unconscious biases, and can result in inequities, disrespect, and unfairness in our dealings with others at work. Since unconscious bias is not the result of a conscious decision, we may not realize that we’re treating others in an inappropriate manner based on our cultural assumptions. This webinar will provide participants with evidence-based strategies to overcome unconscious/implicit bias at work.

    Presenter: Joseph M. Williams


    Overcoming Unconscious Bias in the Workplace - Part 2

    Date: Date: Thursday, August 17, 2017 | 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time
    Register for webinar

    Unconscious institutional biases in the form of policies, practices, and procedures can account for such problems in organizations such as a lack of diversity in hiring and promotion, gender and racial stereotyping, and low employee satisfaction and retention. They can cause employers to overlook great ideas, undermine individual potential, and create a less than ideal work experience. This webinar will provide organizations with strategies to identify and address unconscious/implicit bias in their policies, practices, and procedures.

    Presenter: Joseph M. Williams
