Engineering Diversity and Inclusion While minimum requirements around diversity are set out under the law, best practice companies will seek to go beyond legal compliance.

Improve your organisation’s ability to employ a diverse workforce by attending two days of debate, panel discussions and practical workshops.

You’ll gain insights into overcoming recruitment and retention barriers, so you can employ the best talent.

Join those who are going the extra mile and learn how you can reap the full benefits of a diverse workforce.


Three key benefits from attending the event

  • Real-world solutions from practical workshops designed to give you fresh and impactful answers
  • New contacts with engineering and HR leaders with an opportunity to cross-learn new thinking
  • Best-practice knowledge which will boost your capacity to inspire, attract, recruit and retain a more diverse workforce
