How can professional bodies work together to better understand EDI in professions across the UK?

Better understanding and improving equality, diversity and inclusion (ED&I) is complex. Organisations or individuals cannot do this alone. We live and work in communities and we’re going to need community approaches to better understand and improve ED&I.


Are you an IET member based in the UK? Do you have views about ED&I in our profession that you’d like to share?


The IET are members of the Chartered Bodies Collaborative which was formed in response to the economic challenges presented by the Covid pandemic, to help people get back into work and progress in their professions. As part of our ED&I work we have collectively commissioned new research to identify steps that can be taken to address barriers to progression across our professions in the UK.

We’re asking UK IET members working in the profession to get involved.

The survey will ask about your personal characteristics, as well as a series of questions to understand your views and experiences related to ED&I issues and initiatives.

View from Washington: Twitter – a ‘Knives Out’ mystery

‘Reign of terror’. ‘Space Karen’. And my personal but cryptic favourite – though NSFW if you search for it – ‘Succession s01e02’. Many reactions to Elon Musk’s chaotic early days at Twitter have been very much kniv...
