The Academy is supporting the Your Life campaign, launched by the government on 7 May 2014. The campaign features educators, industry and government working in partnership to boost female participation in technology and engineering.

The Academy pledges aim to support a change in how women and girls are encouraged to consider technology and engineering careers, the subject choices or vocational pathways  and their subsequent participation in the sector.

More detail about the campaign can be found on the campaign website:

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Progression Framework Launch (by invitation only)

The Royal Academy of Engineering in conjunction with the Science Council has developed an innovative Equality Diversity and Inclusion Progression Framework for professional bodies, the first of its kind. The framework builds on the Engineering Diversity Concordat and the Science Council Declaration on Diversity, Equality and Inclusion with the aim of helping professional bodies in science and engineering track and plan progress on diversity and inclusion.

The event will offer an opportunity to find out how the Framework supports planning and progress monitoring on diversity and inclusion, and how to use and complete it. Based on a four-level maturity model, the framework covers the following eight areas of professional body activity.

  1. Governance and leadership
  2. Membership and professional registration
  3. Meetings, conferences and events
  4. Education and training, accreditation and examinations
  5. Prizes, awards and grants
  6. Communications, marketing, outreach and engagement
  7. Employment
  8. Monitoring and measuring
