National Women in Engineering Day – 23rd June

Posted 1st June 2016

Kaur Values is involved with a number of projects and events associated with National Women in Engineering Day on 23rd June.

Why are we involved? If we can sort out the challenges faced by any one diverse group it has a positive impact on the other diversity strands. Every little bit promotes Fairness, Inclusiveness and Respect in the workplace and outside.

The lack of skills and lack of diversity in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) professions is a problem that has been growing year on year.

EngineeringUK estimates the current shortfall of engineers in the UK is at 69,000 a year. The Royal Academy of Engineering reports that the current engineering workforce is 92% male and 94% white.

If we are to address the skills shortage we have to address diversity and inclusion at all levels in the STEM sector.
