On December 3rd, Drs. Laurencin of the CT Convergence Institute at UConn Health and Dr. Ranjan Srivastava of the UConn Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering Department jointly sponsored a table at the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Annual Gala in New York City. The gala celebrates the contributions of chemical engineers in addressing societal needs.
Funds raised help underwrite the expansion of the AIChE Foundation’s Doing a World of Good campaign initiatives, which supports leadership development and retention programs aimed at women engineers and engineers from underrepresented groups, efforts to improve pre-college STEM education, and programs that inspire women engineering undergraduates, graduate students, and young professionals.
AIChE is the world’s leading organization for chemical engineering professionals, with more than 60,000 members from more than 110 countries. AIChE encompasses a host of complementary chemical engineering communities, each with a distinct focus and composed of chemical and related engineers and scientists who contribute according to their technical skills and unique aptitudes. Together, AIChE’s members embody the vital work that the chemical engineering profession provides to meet society’s global challenges.
