The Royal Academy of Engineering has partnered with the Science Council to develop a unique Progression Framework to increase diversity and inclusion across engineering and science. The framework was subsequently used to deliver a benchmarking exercise, the results of which are presented in the Engineering and Science Professional Body report.

The report presents key findings from the 2017 Diversity and Inclusion Progression Framework benchmarking exercise for professional engineering institutions (PEIs) and scientific bodies, and highlights similarities and differences in the submissions and feedback from the two sectors.

It provides a baseline against which to measure progress and gives insight into current good practice, challenges to progress, priorities and recommendations to drive change.

CGL is pleased to have been part of this report and looks forward to the results being progressed to improve the inclusivity of the profession for coming generations.
