The steering group is made up of 10 members (including two international members) and is chaired by Silvia Boschetto. It works to deliver specific activities agreed with the Trustee Board.
Prime objectives of the steering group are to:
- Encourage more people from diverse backgrounds to engage with the institution
- Identify and address any perceived barriers within the Institution
- Tender advice and make recommendations to the Trustee Board concerning the direction and strategy of the Institution in relation to equality and diversity (for members only)
- Develop and support the implementation of the Institution's equality and diversity programme in line with the
Institution’s strategic objectives
In support of the Institution's strategic objective for international growth, the EDSG is proposing a programme of work to promote membership of the Institution to female engineers.
