Are you an engineer or someone who works in, or is interested in, digital engineering and technology sectors in the West of England, UK?
What would make the sector more inclusive for you?
Come to our Listening Workshops this summer to share with us your hopes and the challenges you face.
These listening workshops are for individuals, underrepresented/ underserved people, so we can work with and for you, as part of the Digital Engineering Technology and Innovation (DETI) Skills and Workforce Development Programme led by the Engineering Design and Mathematics department at UWE Bristol, helping remove barriers and open up access to digital skills, jobs and technologies.
The technology and engineering sectors have some of the biggest skills shortages in the UK, but also some of the greatest opportunities for future jobs. We want to proactively include as many people as possible in the future of digital.
We will be hosting several listening workshops throughout June and July, for different groups of individuals currently underrepresented or underserved in engineering. Each workshop will provide opportunities for you to share your voice, participate in discussions and network with like-minded people.
