Join in with our latest campaign – crowdsourcing tips, insights and hacks for making inclusion easy to embed into our everyday lives.
Just over a year ago, we called out to the engineering and technology community – asking you to share your thoughts on equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in our sector, whether good, bad, or somewhere in between.
The feedback we got was that, while most people understand the need for and benefits of increasing inclusion – they sometimes don’t know where to begin, or feel like it can be quite an uphill battle to implement new processes in the workplace.
Visit our website to share your thoughts and feature in our campaign – and help spread the word by sharing it on your socials.
And why is inclusive thinking important?
It’s critical for success, yet only 16.5% of the engineering workforce are women (Engineering UK, 2022) and only 3 in 10 engineering organisations have taken action to improve the diversity of their engineering and technical workforce (IET Skills and Demand in Industry Survey, 2021).
While we know there isn’t an easy one-size-fits-all solution to every challenge faced in this space, there can be some quick wins – and that’s where you come in!
We want to make it as easy as possible to share your ideas, or even tried and tested success stories, and help break down some of those preconceptions. We’ll collate the best ones and promote them on our Inclusion Hub and across social media to help spread the word.
So, what are you doing to embed inclusive thinking across engineering and technology?
Submit your inclusion tips via our web form today.
Remember – it doesn’t have to be one big thing; what may appear a small change to you can really make a difference.
Thank you for your continued support of important initiatives like this - and thank you again to those of you who helped with our research over the past year, and for your support and patience while we worked through your insights and feedback.
