Head of Diversity & Inclusion
Help change the culture of engineering
These are exciting times for diversity and inclusion at the Royal Academy of Engineering, Britain’s national academy for engineering, which brings together the UK’s most eminent engineers from all disciplines to promote excellence in engineering.
Engineering is at the heart of our nation and our future: transforming ideas and materials into global infrastructure, products and services that increase the wealth and health of our economy and society. Yet our profession suffers from long-term under-representation, in particular women, ethnic minorities, people from lower socio-economic backgrounds, LGBT+ and people with disabilities. There is significant work going on across our sectors to address these challenges and the Academy is leading this effort.
We are looking for an outstanding Head of Diversity and Inclusion Engineering to take the Academy’s work forward into a new phase of activity as we develop our new strategic plan. The successful candidate will lead a talented team to drive and deliver an action focused programme of activity to improve inclusion and workplace cultures across all of engineering, working in partnership with many of the UK’s leading engineering companies and professional bodies.
You will have detailed knowledge and substantial experience of diversity and inclusion. This is a leadership role and you will develop a significant profile across both the D&I and engineering communities and will find real intellectual challenge and privileged access to some of the country’s best minds. This is a rare opportunity to make a meaningful impact across a whole profession for current and future generations.
