Engineering and Architecture
for everyone.

Over 360 members are committed to bringing change to our professions.

Engineers and architects create the world around us, making people’s lives better, healthier and more connected. We want the architecture and engineering professions to represent everyone, so the world we create is as diverse and inspiring as the people in it.

Our vision is to create an industry that is inclusive, respectful, and representative of society, where everyone feels safe and valued in their workplace.

We achieve this by providing our members with resources and tools, expert training and workshops, policy and strategy support and more. Additionally, we host a community for DEI practitioners within our industry to collaborate and support one another. Through strong connections with businesses, partners, educational institutions, and government bodies, we help to bridge gaps and foster inclusive cultures and practices.


To truly have sustainable impact we need to change the system and build a coalition of the willing. We’re proud to share our strategy through to 2025 and beyond.
