Join us for a conversation with Dr. Meagan Pollock, Founder of Engineer Inclusion. An engineer turned educator, Meagan leverages engineering thinking, process improvement, and research-based inclusion strategies to help her clients reach their organization’s diversity, equity, and inclusion goals. Meagan will be joining us to talk about a four-part, iterative, reflective, and reflexive framework for developing into an inclusive leader. Inclusive leadership enhances performance, collaboration, attendance, and reduces turnover, and it helps us to create cultures, schools, teams, and organizations that drive equitable outcomes for historically marginalized and minoritized people. We hope you join the conversation!
Jina is a consultant and speaker on diversity, inclusion, culture, and belonging. She creates training programs and workshops to help clients move forward in their D&I journey. She is a storyteller and speaks candidly about her experiences, hard lessons, and ‘aha’ moments that helped her understand the importance of individuality, the value of curiosity, and the courage it takes to “just” be yourself. Often described as “approachable” and “relatable” by her clients, she works with purpose and the intention of being engaging, practical, and immediately applicable to real-world situations. Jina draws from her unique background and mix of work experiences to offer examples and share insights designed to benefit everyone across the workplace ecosystem – executives, management, employees, and customers.
Previously, she was Principal Consultant at EtiennePartners (EP), a boutique consulting firm that offered a unique strategy development, workshops & coaching to leaders, executives and entrepreneurs. Co-founded with her husband, EP was a full-time partnership in both work and life. Although in different professions, their work often intersected around the importance of self-awareness in leadership and navigating conflict within teams. Combining their experiences, backgrounds, and work led to the development of their unique approach to D&I, which she continues to use in her practice today.
Dr. Meagan Pollock envisions a world where personal and social circumstances are not obstacles to achieving potential and where kindness, inclusivity, and conservation prevail. A past recipient of the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, Meagan holds a Ph.D. in engineering education from Purdue University, an MS in electrical engineering from Texas Tech University, and a BS in computer science from Texas Woman’s University. As an engineer turned educator for diversity, equity, and inclusion, Meagan focuses on engineering equity in education and the workforce through her company, Engineer Inclusion.
