The infrastructure sector employs a significant number of people including those delivering consultancy services. It’s important that sector promotes diversity and inclusion in its workforce. There are growing infrastructure opportunities internationally where UK companies provide much needed expertise. These growing opportunities require sustainable and improved infrastructure, to meet the needs of an evolving world. The sector has an opportunity to increase its efforts to ensure diversity and inclusion in meeting the growing needs and fill any emerging gaps in the workforce with talent from diverse backgrounds.
