“SEU Speaker Inspires” Organization of the Month: Team Rubicon

Doug Allen, PE Simpson StrongTie

In January 2020, SE University welcomed Doug Allen, PE, from Simpson StrongTie, to present Delegated Design: Addressing Potential Risks with Proper Project Management. Doug designated Team Rubicon (https://teamrubiconusa.org/) for our SEU Speaker Inspires donation for the month.

Doug shared, “I’d like to donate to Team Rubicon as they are a great organization that supports veterans responding to natural disasters. Simpson Strong-Tie has witnessed Team Rubicon making a difference following natural disasters, most recently Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas.”

Team Rubicon’s mission is providing disaster relief to those affected by natural disasters, be they domestic or international. By pairing the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders, medical professionals, and technology solutions, Team Rubicon aims to provide the greatest service and impact possible.

Thank you, Doug, for helping structural engineers with your SE University session, and for your designation of Team Rubicon as one of our SEU Speaker Inspires Organizations of the Month!



SE University began the SEU Speaker Inspires program in 2015 as a way to “pay it forward”, enabling our speakers to designate a charity/organization of their choice for SE University to make a donation to help improve our world.
