Resources for our journey against racism

Diversity, transformation, and learning are at the core of our OEOP mission. As an organization, we have committed to increasing access in science and engineering since the launch of the first MITES class in 1975. As we grieve for the lives that were unjustly taken from members of the Black community, we recognize the need for individual and organizational actions in the journey against racism and discrimination.

The following are resources that our team has used to both cope with these difficult times, and educate ourselves and our communities. The list includes options for self-care, education, and action that we hope will be helpful to you. This list is by no means exhaustive, and we welcome additional resources and suggestions via email at
