Amazing Past ADDC Intervention

One day a few weeks ago, I was walking in the Towne building in Engineering and noticed how many portraits of male engineers there were on the walls but barely saw any female engineer photos anywhere. A few days later, when I was doing research for Project 4, I found out that another group a few years ago created an intervention addressing the exact issue that I had just discovered in Towne! This group put up photos of female engineers right next to the existing photos of male ones to promote more diversity representation in engineering. Check out this DP article about the intervention here: https://www.thedp.com/article/2015/01/photos-of-women-in-engineering-posted-throughout-towne
