There is a national imperative to forge a productive engineering career ladder from the barrios, ghettos and reservations of this nation to the boardrooms and upper management positions of American industry. Creation of exemplary systems to provide minorities a sound engineering education, meaningful post-graduate employment, and assignments to increasingly challenging positions-all critical steps along the way-will be ineffective without encouragement to and preparation of minority youth to fill the lower rungs of education. This paper describes the philosophies and activities of the ME3Task Force, a collective attempt by several groups to bring the career ladder of engineering into clear focus of precollege minority youth and to encourage and help prepare them in their steps toward the next rung-college education.
