Event description

Description

Hosted by the Careers Service at Imperial College London this unique event provides a fantastic opportunity to meet with LGBT+ professionals from a range of inclusive employers. Our event aims to facilitate career discussions and share perspectives on the workplace to demonstrate that it’s possible to be comfortable and successful at work while being yourself.

The event will consist of two parts - a Formal Speed Networking Session (a bit like speed dating) followed by an Informal Networking Session (where you can talk to anyone in the room). LGBT+ employees from a variety of companies will be seated at tables around the venue and students will be allocated to small groups on arrival. Collectively the groups of students will move from table to table every 7-8 minutes for a series of short conversations with the company representatives. After visiting several tables we will close the formal part of the evening and move to the informal networking allowing students to engage with any of the company representatives at any of the tables.

The LGBT+ employees cover a range of roles from finance and technical positions to project management and marketing and they represent a variety of organisations including; Accenture, Airbus, Amadeus IT Services UK Limited, Amazon, Aon, AstraZeneca, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Bulb, BWB Consulting, Capco, CGI, CIL Management Consultants, Civil Service Fast Stream, Commerzbank, FTI Consulting, HSBC, Macquarie Group, Teach First, UBS, WSP. Before the event: you may want to read about the organisations here and we'd recommend you watch this short video for a few tips on how to make the most of the event.

Refreshments will be served throughout. Please arrive for 6PM.

Directions: If you're not sure how to get to us then a campus map can be found here and directions to campus can be found here. The event is in Queen's Tower Rooms (QTR) on the ground floor of the Sherfield Building.
