You just paid $300k to study “engineering culture” impediments to LGBTQ students

College, Classroom, NY University

This year in review, originally posted July 16, 2015

Is “engineering culture” really the impediment preventing LGBTQ students from pursuing a career in engineering? Or is it just that LGBTQ students on the whole simply aren’t interested in pursuing a career in engineering? We may soon find out!

The National Science Foundation is granting $300,000 in taxpayer funds to study “engineering culture” in attempt to identify the impediments (if there actually are any) to LGBTQ students. The grant further states:

“this project will build a network of LGBTQ-affirming faculty who are aware of strategies to foster an inclusive environment and are empowered to advance LGBTQ equality in their departments”

We already have anti-discrimination laws and policies in place pretty much everywhere. Call me confused, but I really don’t see what anyone’s sexual preferences have to do with engineering. Feel free to explain it to me in the comments below.
