First Speaker- Martin Griffin, Co-Chair Equal Engineers Neurodiversity Network

Martin will provide an introduction to what equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) is, and why these concepts are vital to consider from the attraction to the retention and the development of members of Professional Bodies. He will also present some self-awareness exercises to expose potential privilege and implicit bias.

We will also be joined by a second speaker- Mark Harrisson, Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Transformation at The Chartered Institute of Building
