We're delighted to welcome Victoria Atkins MP, Minister for Women, to make our keynote address today. She says closing the gender pay gap isn't just a sign of inclusivity - “It makes good business sense." #EngDiversity
"The UK will need 59,000 more engineers per year to address the skills shortage. We must encourage highly skilled women and men to stay in the sector" says Victoria Atkins MP - tackling the gender pay gap improves the sector and benefits everyone. #EngDiversity
"Why on earth wouldn't we try to draw on the talents of half the population?

My challenge to you is to use the data and resources available to understand the gender pay gap in your organisation. Engineering is about crafting solutions." - Victoria Atkins MP #EngDiversity
