Our programmes and activities are informed by evidence, research and data and we undertake research to better understand the barriers faced by underrepresented groups in engineering and the solutions required. Our aim is to catalyse a step change in the diversity of the workforce and the prevalence of inclusive cultures across engineering industry.
