Thinking about neurodiversity? With one in seven people worldwide thought to be neurodivergent, and an estimated 820,000 neurodivergent engineers working in the UK alone, neurodiversity in the engineering community is something we should all be talking about.

This webinar is an opportunity to harness our community for change, to draw from expertise, experience and positive initiatives to address diverse needs and to better understand the contributions that a neurodiverse community makes to engineering.

We know that the voices of the Engineering Academics Network members have the power to address inequality in, and exclusion from, engineering education for those who think differently. If you want to be part of a ground swell for change, come along, share your experiences, be inspired and unleash your passion. This webinar is only the start of EPC’s neurodiversity in engineering commitment. Help us design an inclusive campaign with, not just for, the community.

There will be a meeting of the RIKT committee sub group and REF experts taking place 1st August at 2pm.

This 30 minute webinar will take place Wednesday 5th July at 10.30am and will be followed by the EPC Annual General Meeting 2023 at 11.00am.

Susan Lapworth, the Chief Executive of the Office for Students, the regulator for higher education in England will deliver a short presentation followed by a Q&A, hosted by outgoing EPC President, Professor Mike Sutcliffe.


Our Annual General Meeting this year will be held on Wednesday 5th July. This will be preceded by a 30 minute presentation and Q&A by Susan Lapworth, the Chief Executive of the Office for Students (the regulator of English higher education).
