The UH chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) is bringing together UH NSBE alumni and current student members for an information session, titled “NSBE Guy and Girl Talk,” on Tuesday, April 9, in room 108 of Agnes Arnold Hall on campus.

“This is our last general body meeting of the semester,” said Kayla Nash, chairperson of UH NSBE. “Instead of a corporate sponsor speaking, members will have a chance to engage with past UH NSBE members, learn about their experiences in UHNSBE and the workplace, and ask questions.”

The panelists include 16 former NSBE members and UH graduates from a variety of engineering disciplines, some from the legal arena and all representing a multitude of business and industry experience. As one panelist, Kenneth Flakes (BSME ’02), put it: “There will be nearly 200 years of total experience in one room.”

This is the second year UH NSBE is hosting the event.

“I am hoping that members are able see themselves in some of our panelists and grow a stronger connection to UH NSBE,” said Nash, who is a pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Supply Chain and Logistics Technology.

The event is open to UH NSBE members, recent graduates and anyone interested.
