It is important to state that the Institution of Civil Engineers is committed to a policy of equal opportunities. This policy applies to members of all grades, employees and applicants. The Institution also encourages its members to follow a similar equal opportunities policy in their workplaces. ICE actively promotes flexible working patterns for women, and for men.
In the past, work-life balance was considered a women's issue. It is now recognised as a business imperative for attracting and retaining highly productive employees of both sexes.
