Registration is now open for the “Engineering Ethics: Maintaining society’s trust in the Engineering Profession” report launch webinar. This event marks the publication of this important work produced the Engineering Ethics Reference Group (a joint committee of the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Engineering Council).Ethical practice has long been part of the behaviours (together with sustainability and inclusion) which make a profession aspirational and trust-worthy. Engineering has been working for many years on embedding ethical engineering in professional practice. This report is next step in this work, drawing in progress so far and launching a new vision. It also includes actions to support that vision, and embed it in the culture of professional engineering. In this webinar, you will hear from the Chair of the Engineering Ethics Reference Group, Professor David Bogle FIChemE FREng, followed by a panel discussion with Chi Onwurah MP, Professor Chris Atkin FREng FRAeS (Chair of the Engineering Council), Dr Ollie Folayan (Chair AFBE-UK Scotland), and Maitheya Riva (early career engineer representative, IOM3). Register now for the opportunity to hear about the report, and how the profession is working to embed ethical practice across engineering in the UK.
Further details, including the programme for the event and how to register are available on the RAEng website.
