The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)’s Engineering for Change (E4C) has announced keynote speakers and award nominees for its fourth annual Impact.Engineered forum, a virtual event and networking experience, 9 a.m. to 2p.m. EST, Thursday and Friday, Dec. 3-4, 2020.
Keynote speakers Asha Varghese, president of The Caterpillar Foundation, and Jenny Frankel-Reed, climate adaptation strategy lead for Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will open and close the event with their remarks. Varghese, a thought leader in workforce readiness, international business development, and sustainable infrastructure, and Frankel-Reed, an advocate of technology enabling climate resilience, will share their unique perspectives on engineering pathways to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The only event that recognizes and amplifies the role of engineers in solving global challenges, Impact.Engineered offers participants the opportunity to meet and learn from engineers, social entrepreneurs, multilateral agencies, impact investors, industry leaders, and rising stars who are shaping the future of business and engineering. The two-day program includes a full roster of global thought-leading speakers – more than 60% of whom are women – in interactive workshops and presentations, a technology showcase, and awards reception.
The program focuses on “partnerships advancing the decade of action,” in recognition of the 2030 agenda for achieving the U.N. SDGs and acknowledging that global challenges from climate change to COVID-19 and economic downturn require technical solutions, workforce development, resilient infrastructure and public leadership to drive implementation. The virtual format creates new opportunities to connect with E4C’s global audience of more than one million innovators. Visit the event agenda for more details.
