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.

Effective project management is a key element of every engineering project. Project scheduling is a very important tool, used to schedule and track project activities over a specified period of time. The Critical Path Method allows project team members to identify activities that are on the critical path and cannot be delayed without delaying the project. Activities that are not on the critical path and have “float” can also be identified. For engineering students interested in project management, this this is a critical skill. Presentation will give an overview of very basic principles of project management, with emphasis on project scheduling methods, including identification of the Critical Path of a project and discussion of various types of “float.”Presenter: Jessica Ostoyich, Project Manager, Mortenson Construction
