AFBE Live 2024!

In 2022, Association for Black and Minority Ethnic Engineers (AFBE-UK) created AFBE Live24! in order to display the power of Engineering and Technology in solving the most complex technological challenges of the modern day.

AFBELive also provides a forum for engineers, technologists, students, politicians, industry leaders and experienced professionals to deep dive into the state of our sector and to discuss the role that a more diverse and Inclusive workforce might play in improving the sector’s ability to innovate.

This years theme was The Future of Engineering: Human Centric Solutions focusing on:

1️⃣ - AI and Ethical Implications: Use of data to drive ethical practices and culture change

2️⃣Labour Income Inequality: Growing gap between the rich and the poor, opportunities.

3️⃣Sustainability: Skills transfer and the Energy Transition

4️⃣Equity in the built environment: Ensuring that design, construction, operation, management, and regulation meets the needs of all communities.

5️⃣Company Culture and Inclusion: Including Mental Health and Psychological Safety
