The Diversity & Inclusion programme’s (D&IP) strategy 2016-2020 builds on progress made so far by setting out the vision and mission of the programme:
An inclusive engineering profession that inspires attracts and retains people from diverse backgrounds and reflects UK society.
Leading the engineering profession to challenge the status quo, stimulate cultural change and improve diversity and inclusion.
The programme has three strategic aims: providing insight to remove barriers to D&I in engineering employment and professional registration; engaging in partnerships to remove barriers to increasing D&I and delivering impact through communications.
Providing insight to remove barriers to D&I in engineering employment and professional registration
Analyse data and information to quantify and provide narrative on diversity and inclusion in the engineering skills pipeline and across engineering employment and professional institutions
Engaging in partnerships to remove barriers to increasing D&I
Collaborate and partner with the Academy internally, engineering employers, professional engineering institutions and others to remove barriers to progressing diversity and inclusion
Delivering impact through communications
Communicate solutions, good practice and research to effectively remove barriers; and celebrate progress and success
