Diversity and Inclusion Programme event

Celebrate, Communicate, Consult
Time: 9.30am-2.30pm
Location: Royal Academy of Engineering, 3 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5DG

Overview

This year's annual Diversity & Inclusion Programme (D&IP) plenary event will focus on exploring how to develop more inclusive cultures across the engineering profession. The event will bring together key programme stakeholders and others to celebrate what has been achieved in the last year and consult on plans for the future.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about findings, key messages and recommendations from the Inclusive Culture Project, delivered in the last year to find out more about the culture of engineering, the extent to which it is inclusive and what can be done to make it more so. Progress on other aspects of the programme will also be shared including progress by the Academy Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Group (DILG) of engineering employers, and collective benchmarking across Professional Engineering Institutions using the Progression Framework.

This event is an excellent opportunity for networking and offers a great platform to share ideas and best practice on D&I.

Who should attend?

  • Senior engineering leaders/managers
  • HR and Diversity & Inclusion leaders
  • Representatives from professional engineering institutions
  • Engineering employers (large and SMEs)
  • Government representatives
  • Third-sector organisations involved in D&I
