In January 2017, the Royal Academy of Engineering conducted a survey to increase understanding of the culture of engineering, the extent to which it is inclusive, and what would make it more so. The Academy would like to thank every individual engineer who responded, and all the organisations that took time to promote and circulate the survey among their employees. Results of this survey were published in the September 2017 report, Creating cultures where all engineers thrive.

As a result of individual engineer and employer support, the Academy is delighted to report that 6,799 people working in engineering roles and on engineering projects across the UK responded to the survey. The infographics below give insight into the profile of respondents, including engineering and diversity characteristics, and aspects of work-life balance. Some of the demographics reflect what is already known about the engineering employment landscape, and in other cases, new information is presented.
