Driving inclusion

Ensure all young people have opportunities to engage in activities that inspire engineering and technology futures, and that no one is left behind.

Why this pledge matters:

Delivery of widespread, diverse, and inclusive activities across the UK ensures that more and more diverse young people have the opportunity to benefit from impactful activities. We need to prioritise the funding, creation, and delivery of activities to under-represented groups in engineering and tech.

Ambition of the pledge

For all young people to participate in impactful engineering-inspiration activities regardless of gender, ethnicity, socio-economic background, prior attainment or location.
