Organiser

InterEngineering

InterEngineering is a volunteer led grassroots initiative, founded from the Data Driven Diversity (the facts about being LGBT in the Engineering Profession) event. With support from the Royal Academy of Engineering and Stonewall, we want to help connect, inform and empower LGBT Engineers.

Connect

Provide networking opportunities for LGBT engineers in different companies to meet, discuss improvements that the profession could be making, and share best practice for growing company support.

Inform

Sharing and collecting experience and resources of LGBT people working in engineering and promoting wider initiatives within the industry to help promote diversity.

Empower

Running events to help LGBT engineers to create their own Business Resource Groups to promote and support diversity in their workplace, and providing a forum for smaller enterprises.
