Introducing a new podcast by the DC chapter of Engineers without Borders. Gabe and Rachel discuss the organization and outline the future of the podcast.
Switch and Board is proud to sponsor and produce EWB-DC’s podcast. EWB-DC partners with disadvantaged communities to improve their quality of life through environmentally and economically sustainable engineering projects. The objective is to incorporate and train the community in all phases of the sustainable projects to ensure ownership, appropriateness and long-term effectiveness.
EWB involves professionals and students from a variety of professions including engineering, public health, anthropology, geology, business, communications, and graphic design. EWB-DC works together with EWB Student Chapters at Howard University, The George Washington University, and Catholic University to improve the quality of life in partner communities worldwide. Students are involved in every step of the process, enabling them to learn firsthand about solutions to the problems of the developing world.
