About the Sanjay Mortimer Foundation
Neurodivergent minds have been shown to be associated with creativity, innovation, and risk-taking, all of which are critical skills for engineers to tackle the challenges of the future. Despite this, they remain highly underrepresented in engineering degrees, which makes them significantly less likely to enter engineering careers. The SMF aims to help these neurodiverse individuals, interested in engineering and making, realise where their talents and strengths lie. Enabling them to shape their perceived belief in their engineering abilities, thus building self-esteem and increasing interest in engineering. Find out more about the SMF at www.sanjaymortimerfoundation.org/.
