EqualEngineers was proud to collaborate with Leonardo to develop and implement a strategic Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) framework. This initiative was integral to Leonardo’s commitment to fostering an inclusive workplace that values and leverages diverse perspectives.

Strategy Overview

Our partnership kicked off with a series of focus groups conducted across six UK sites, engaging over 150 employees. These discussions were fundamental for capturing a wide range of insights directly from the workforce, contributing to a deeper understanding of the existing cultural landscape. To complement these insights, we distributed a comprehensive survey to Leonardo’s 7,000-strong UK workforce, achieving a significant 10% response rate. The feedback gathered was essential in identifying key areas for improvement and action.

In addition to internal data gathering, we facilitated a cross-sector group in collaboration with the Royal Aeronautical Society. This group served as a platform for sharing findings and best practices, further enriching the strategy development process. The insights obtained from these diverse sources were synthesised into coherent themes that then formed the pillars of Leonardo’s DEI strategy.

Working closely with Leonardo’s D&I Lead and HR Director, we developed tailored recommendations that outlined specific activities and initiatives the organisation should prioritise to meet its DEI targets. These recommendations were designed to enhance employee engagement and foster a truly inclusive culture.
