Engineering diversity and inclusion
Challenging companies to deliver equality on all fronts
8 - 9 November 2018 | InterContinental London – The O2
The issue of diversity and inclusion in the engineering workplace is a hot topic – whether it’s gender diversity at board level or improving LGBTQ+ rights at work.
Actively demonstrate your organisation’s commitment to employing a diverse workforce by attending two days of debate, panel discussions and practical workshops. You’ll gain insight into overcoming recruitment barriers on every level, so you recruit the best people available and discover how valuing every individual will grow your talent pool.
While minimum requirements around diversity are set out under the law, best practice companies will seek to go beyond legal compliance. Join those who are going the extra mile and learn how you can reap the full benefits of a diverse workforce.
