In 2013 over 30 professional engineering institutions in the UK signed the “Engineering Diversity Concordat” with the Royal Academy of Engineering in which they agreed to commit to equality and inclusion principles and practices and to take action to increase diversity amongst professional members. This is also important if we are to meet the increasing demand for engineering graduates in the UK into the future.
This event organised by the Institution of Civil Engineers (South West) on National Women in Engineering Day brings together both experienced and aspiring engineers from industry and education to discuss diversity in the engineering workforce and what we can do at individual, corporate, and institutional levels to achieve continued improvement.
Sessions and presentations from both the engineering and non-engineering profession will include:
- Is Inclusivity good for business?
- Is your business inclusive?
- Is the ceiling made of glass?
- Meeting the workplace challenge
- When I grow up, I want to be…
- Preventing discrimination in the workplace.
