Diversity & Inclusion in the STEM Sectors

enei’s thought-leadership conference “STEM : A Roadmap to Success” delivered a comprehensive overview of the issues faced by employers around STEM:

  • UK employers are increasingly struggling to find qualified candidates roles
  • Too few students are pursuing STEM subjects
  • There is a huge gender divide, with women and girls actively avoiding STEM opportunities.

Aim

The STEM Action Group provides you with a unique opportunity to debate with other enei Members who want to lead the change on Diversity & Inclusion in the STEM sector. We will discuss best practice and practical solution to connect schools and businesses and increase the STEM talent pool.

Objectives

During this Roundtable, we will focus on providing direction and practical solutions that enable employers to understand the educational context, involving key stakeholders and, demonstrating how best to increase participation of qualified people into the workplace. We will address in particular:

  • Breadth of STEM: STEM is not just about engineering, and engineering roles are not just about engineering.
  • Diversity within STEM roles (e.g., disability, race, not just gender).
  • Social mobility within STEM roles. 
  • What can you do that will make a difference?

Host & Presenter

Defra, our host for this exclusive roundtable, will share with us their experience on creating a dedicated Woman’s Network to "promote gender equality and to empower/enable women to thrive at their workplace". They will give us an insight into the practical, change-making actions that they’ve done to bring D&I to the forefront of the STEM sector.

It’s time to accelerate Leading the Change on Diversity & Inclusion in the STEM sector. Make sure you book your place now!

Who should attend:

enei Members who have a real interest in progressing the STEM agenda and are willing to participate in trialling new approaches.

The Roundtable is a Member Only Event.
