Employers must support neurodivergent people to make sector more inclusive

A new report published today by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) reveals that there is an urgent need to make engineering and technology more inclusive for neurodivergent people – and it provides practical guidance to STEM employers to create a more inclusive working environment.

The report – which is based on qualitative research including a number of focus groups of engineers and technicians with lived experiences of neurodiversity – found that many are reluctant to be open at work due to stigma and say they face a range of challenges. Many also find being part of an under-represented group magnifies the challenges, and that employers within the sector often miss the opportunity to benefit from specific strengths associated with neurodiversity.

It also highlights that not all workplace challenges that neurodivergent engineers and technicians face are related to the specifics of their neurotype – and it points out that challenges result from a range of other factors including lack of awareness and understanding; neurotypical approaches and expectations being the standard for workplace behaviour; accessing workplace adaptations and the impact of all these on sustaining good mental health and well-being.

Guidance for employers on how to best build a more neuroinclusive environment includes:

  • Treating neurodivergent engineers and technicians as individuals
  • Raising awareness and shifting attitudes
  • Training line managers to support neurodivergent team members
  • Integrating neurodiversity into working practices and culture
  • Making it easier to access workplace adjustments
  • Offering targeted career support where it is wanted
  • Enabling neurodivergent engineers and technicians to access and build support.

Dr Laura Norton, Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at the IET, said: “Neurodivergent engineers and technicians bring many and varied strengths to their work. Too often, however, these strengths are not recognised or appreciated by managers, colleagues or employers.

“There is a huge opportunity awaiting employers and teams in the engineering and technology sector who are willing to understand and address the needs of their neurodivergent staff and colleagues. We hope this study helps increase awareness and understanding, and spurs action towards realising that opportunity.”

Andy Parker, Chair of the IET’s EDI Advisory Group, said: “As a neurodivergent engineer myself, it’s fantastic and very encouraging to see the IET pioneering research into the challenges and experiences of the neurodivergent community in engineering and technology – an area that has remained largely unexplored until now.”

Katy Deacon, IET Trustee and Chair of the IET EDI Working Party, added: “Everyone should feel empowered and supported to fulfil their potential and feel that they belong in engineering and technology. For us, building an understanding of the extent of neurodiversity in the sector, as well as breaking down barriers, is a crucial element to realising this aim. There is much more we can do to truly harness the strengths and skills of neurodivergent people, that will improve the working experience for all.”

NMITE unveils ‘Changing Lives’ impact and new Bursary Initiative: Transforming Futures in and for the Local Community

Two years on from welcoming its first students in 2021, NMITE (New Model Institute for Technology & Engineering) is thrilled to launch its Life Changer bursary initiative and is showcasing the impact it has achieved locally with a supporting campaign ‘Changing Lives’.  Launching on 6 November 2023, the campaign aims to encourage aspiring students from or studying in Herefordshire to seize the opportunities available for the September 2024 intake by highlighting the stories of many lives already changed by NMITE. 

The 30 bursaries offer local students a unique chance for higher education within their own community. Upon acceptance, each student will receive a non-means tested cash bursary, ranging from £7,000 to £10,000, depending on their chosen degree programme, providing them with the launchpad needed to embark on their Higher Education journey.   Generating awareness and engaging with the local community, ‘Changing Lives’ will be visible across the county. NMITE will be sharing authentic perspectives and stories from students, staff and industry partners, helping to demonstrate what an impact NMITE has already made.  

Commenting on this news, Minister for Skills, Apprenticeships and Higher Education Robert Halfon said: “I am an enormous advocate of social mobility through education, and it’s fantastic to see this investment in future talent from NMITE. This new bursary scheme will help change people’s lives in the local community and beyond, giving them a ladder of opportunity into dynamic and competitive industries.”

James Newby, President and Chief Executive, NMITE, added “The Life Changer bursaries are more than just financial support; they are an investment in the future of Herefordshire.  The generous donors behind our bursaries are not only helping us to foster local talent through education, they are nurturing a skilled workforce right here in our community. “We believe in removing barriers and creating pathways to success.  And nothing could be better than using our current student community to tell their compelling stories about the changes and impact NMITE is already achieving.”

These stories will be seen and heard throughout Herefordshire via NMITE’s social channels  including videos on Youtube, with posters displayed by local businesses and supporters and at local Herefordshire locations and landmarks.  The plan is to ensure that everyone locally will have the opportunity to see, hear and read what a difference NMITE is making and intends to make in the future via the new bursary initiative.

An example of one of the students who will feature is Dan James, a local NMITE student pursuing an MEng degree since 2022, who is enthusiastic about the opportunity that NMITE has brought “NMITE is offering higher education on our doorstep, something I never thought possible growing up. The opportunity to connect with local business partners is invaluable, especially for someone like me seeking a career in the area.”

Peter Jelf, Founder and Director of Visicon, an employer partner of NMITE for over three years explains their support for this initiative “NMITE is attracting students from all around the country, but having this resource on your doorstep for students in Herefordshire is a brilliant thing.   With these bursaries, you don’t have to pay to stay away, it’s just a real win for folks looking to get into engineering in Herefordshire. What initially drew me to NMITE was the way they’re approaching degree level engineering education. What NMITE are doing differently is embracing the best of both worlds and they are bringing hands-on, actual project-based engineering to degree level courses”.

The Rt Hon Jesse Norman MP for Hereford and South Herefordshire, who originally conceived the idea of a new, higher education offering in Hereford, said “NMITE has always had a core mission to create life-changing educational and school opportunities for young people living in studying in Herefordshire. That’s just what these new Life Changer bursaries will do. Anyone local who is interested for themselves, for their children or grandchildren should take a look.”

EngineeringUK launches new 5-year strategy to enable engineering and technology to thrive

Not-for-profit EngineeringUK has today announced it’s entering a new strategy period – which will set the direction of the organisation over the next 5 years.

With a core purpose of driving change so more young people choose engineering and technology careers, EngineeringUK’s refreshed vision is for the UK to have the diverse workforce needed for engineering and technology to thrive and to drive economic prosperity, improve sustainability and achieve net zero.

Engineering and tech are critically important for the UK, with huge opportunities and responsibilities over the coming years, but the sector continues to face significant workforce challenges.

Dr Hilary Leevers, Chief Executive of EngineeringUK, explains “For engineering and technology to really thrive, we urgently need more people and more diversity in our workforce. Our new strategy provides us, and importantly all of our partners, with a renewed focus on what we’re trying to achieve, and clarity on how we’re going to get there.

“We’re determined to achieve our mission of enabling more young people from all backgrounds to be inspired, informed and progress into engineering and technology. But this will only be possible by working in partnership – we all have a part to play in this.”

Dr Alice Bunn, Chief Executive of the Institution for Mechanical Engineers and EngineeringUK Trustee, comments: “Engineering is an exciting, rewarding career and engineers have a key role in solving many of the complex global challenges we face today. We need to encourage many more young people into the profession, and it is vitally important we work together to drive change and ensure that young people have the right skills to make a difference. EngineeringUK’s new strategy will engage more young people with engineering and technology, helping to inspire a new generation of innovators.”

EngineeringUK’s strategy from 2023 to 2028 consists of 4 key strands of activity including:

  • Research and evidence – establishing the composition of the current engineering and technology workforce, future workforce needs and how to address them   
  • Leadership – leading efforts to grow the collective impact of all engineering and technology inspiration and careers activities with young people of school age     
  • Activities for schools – expanding its activities to encourage more, and more diverse, young people into engineering, technician and tech roles        
  • Advocacy – providing advocacy and support to address policy and delivery challenges in STEM and careers education and workforce planning for engineering and tech

Ed Almond, Chief Executive of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and EngineeringUK Trustee, said: “With clear aims across research evidence, leadership, activities for schools and advocacy, this new strategy ensures it is providing an in-depth and multifaceted approach to inspire the next generation of engineers to deliver the solutions required by society.”

He continues, “The demand for engineers is only increasing, so the work that EngineeringUK does – along with all engineering PEIs across the UK – is critical. We need to promote the range of science, engineering and technology careers to young people from all different backgrounds. We also need to show society its impact and importance in tackling world challenges, and advocate for policy and education in engineering. It’s a collective effort so collaboration is key in driving real change. We look forward to continuing our work with EngineeringUK to engineer a better world together.”

Dr Janet Young, Director General of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and EngineeringUK Trustee, commented: “The world is facing unprecedented challenges, from climate change to biodiversity loss. Engineers have the skills and drive to change the world, and are in a unique position to address these challenges head on. This renewed strategy will encourage and inspire the engineers and infrastructure professionals necessary to build the cleaner, greener future we all need.”

Benj Sykes, Head of Environment, Consenting and External Affairs at Orsted, commented: “As one of the world’s leading renewable energy developers, a diverse, innovative, collaborative group of engineers lies at the very core of our business. These teams drive forward our projects turning concepts and plans into vital green energy generating assets, such as offshore wind, so we’re delighted to see sustainability and net zero feature so prominently in the EngineeringUK vision. A diverse pool of future talent is crucial for the success of our business and many industries alike. By boosting engagement and aspiration in STEM-based careers, we can open up the world of possibilities to future generations of scientists & engineers.”

To Create Gender Equality and Empower All Women and Girls

Dr Sam Collins, CEO and Founder, Aspire writes:

Over the past 22 years of Aspire, I have been blown away by the extraordinary yet everyday women who let us know about the projects they are doing that make a difference to women and girls. Often these projects are done in addition to their day jobs and are born out of a passion and desire to see change. One of the biggest challenges is often raising visibility of this work and receiving the positive acknowledgement that they truly deserve.

As part of our efforts to empower and inspire women, we are seeking to raise the profile of amazing women and organisations that are doing work that contribute to gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. This could be individuals, corporations, businesses, charities or governmental organisations.

We will feature the person and their project on our website homepage as part of our campaign aligned with UN Sustainable Development Goal 5 “To Create Gender Equality and Empower All Women and Girls”.This campaign will cover the following areas:

  1. Ensuring full participation in leadership and decision-making
  2. Universal access to reproductive health and rights
  3. Equal rights to economic resources, property and financial services
  4. Promoting the empowerment of women through technology
  5. Adopt policies and legislation for gender equality
  6. Valuing unpaid care and shared domestic responsibilities
  7. Ending discrimination against women and girls
  8. Ending violence against women and girls 
  9. Eliminating harmful practices such as forced marriages and genital mutilation 
  10. Something else, you let us know!

We will provide visibility of 10 projects to our community of over 250,000 people across the world. It will also serve as a source of inspiration and ideas for others who might like to do work in these areas.

If you are interested and would like to have yourself and/or your organisation featured, then please contact us for more information. We are looking for 10 projects and will choose those who we believe are most aligned with our mission.
