Why is inclusive thinking important?
Inclusion is 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).
Inclusion is vital to achieving true equality and diversity of thought, but sometimes knowing where to start can be daunting – this was echoed by research we recently conducted where some people told us they were unsure what they could do to improve inclusion in engineering and technology.
Embedding inclusion in your workplace may seem like a huge task, but sometimes small changes can make big impacts. That’s why we’ve launched this campaign - to make embedding inclusion as easy as possible.
