Renee Depew graduated with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs in 1989 and has worked in the field of electrical engineering and computer science since that time. Renee’s passion for learning about racism and its effects on humanity led her to study with the Wilmette Institute Anti-Black Racism course in early 2019. She then worked as a teaching assistant in the course for several sessions before moving into her current faculty position. Renee also serves as an assistant for the WI Anti-Racism Project Center and as a facilitator for Copper to Gold. She hones her skills weekly in an anti-racism discussion group that reads and discusses the latest books on racism, and hosts a monthly article club at her workplace that educates employees on racism and how it can show up in the workplace.
