We have adopted the Diversity and Inclusion Progression Framework that was launched by the Science Council and the Royal Academy of Engineering to help professional bodies assess and monitor their progress on diversity and inclusion.
This framework will help us identify diversity and inclusion practice in relation to eight functions common to professional bodies which are:
The Framework will give us the opportunity to assess each of these functions against a four-level maturing model. The aim is to support discussion, initiation, planning and assessment of diversity and inclusion work. By adopting the framework, we are committing to diversity and inclusion for our members, the way we oversee our association and our influence with collaborators.
