Let's talk, share ideas and think about how we can work together to inspire the next generation of engineers.
The UK’s engineering sector is considerably less diverse than the general population, meaning many groups are under-represented in the workforce. With greater diversity of talent comes greater diversity of thought, but why is that important? And if some groups don’t traditionally enter engineering careers, how can we do things differently to encourage future generations to buck the trend?
Hear from members of the EngineeringUK team as well as voices from other organisations as we share insights on the importance of a more diverse engineering workforce and can all do to make the sector more representative.
