In this paper, the ethical responsibility of the engineer will be linked to the obligation to promote diversity by creating a welcoming environment in the engineering professions. This ethical obligation will be supported using the theories of moral decision-making and the fundamental canons of the engineering codes of ethics. Including this concept in engineering ethics education could potentially result in a more welcoming and inclusive workplace environment, and ultimately aid in addressing the engineering workforce needs gap. Successfully linking the ethical obligation of the engineer to diversity issues, and including this in engineering ethics education, could make a positive difference across engineering disciplines.
