Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

We're committed to reflecting and representing the diversity of the engineering community. We are a professional home for every engineer and technician and want to include everyone whatever their background.

We're a diverse organisation and have much to be proud of, but we are also challenging ourselves to ensure that Diversity and Inclusion is hardwired into everything we do.

If we get it right, it will be evident in how we work with our members, our people and our partners.

See what we're doing to make a more equal, diverse and inclusive profession - and how you can get involved - below.

Inclusive thinking? Pass it on!

What are you doing to embed inclusive thinking across engineering and technology? Share your tips, insights and hacks - and help us pass it on!

Neurodiversity Member Network

Our Neurodiversity Member Network is open to all IET members and offers peer-to-peer support for neurodiverse engineers and technicians, as well as an opportunity to share your experiences, needs and concerns with our internal EDI team. You’ll meet like-minded people and have a chance create real change for neurodiverse people in the engineering and technology communities.

If you would like to become a member or learn more about the network, please email


We're a Disability Confident Employer

At the IET, we’re committed to drawing from the widest pool of talent available. Our Disability Confident Employer status helps us to ensure we are creating an environment where all of our colleagues can bring their whole selves to work and feel supported.

We’re a Stonewall Diversity Champion

We believe in the power of a workplace that is truly equal, which is why we’re thrilled to be a part of the Diversity Champions programme – the leading employers’ programme for ensuring all LGBT staff are accepted without exception in the workplace.

Stonewall are Europe’s largest lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) charity, so their expertise on how to encourage inclusive and accepting environments (and the insights of fellow programme members) is invaluable to us.
