Event description

Description

Recent Stonewall research shows significant regional differences in how comfortable people are in disclosing their sexual orientation or gender identity at work, highlighting the need to support LGBT inclusive workplaces across the whole of the UK.

Global engineering consultancy, Mott MacDonald is hosting an engaging, interactive peer learning forum on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT+) inclusion. Hosted in our Sheffield office, in collaboration with leading LGBT+ charity Stonewall, we will be sharing our award-winning equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) efforts and tackling the challenge of fostering LGBT+ inclusive workplaces across different regions.

We’ll spotlight specific examples and ideas. Feedback and engagement will be welcomed, especially in the session led by Jules Parkinson from Stonewall which will focus on action learning. The forum will close with an insight into the LGBT+ inclusion efforts of industry leader EY and there will be time for questions. A networking lunch will also be provided.

We are keen to connect with peer organisations in the engineering, construction, property, and consultancy arenas, and with clients and suppliers in our sectors; notably transportation, power and energy. Attendees can be in any role, including HR representatives, LGBT+ employee network champions and other members of staff keen to learn more on LGBT+ workplace inclusion.

Please note the event is open to attendees of all sexual orientations and gender identities with the highest standards of inclusive language and behaviour expected as standard to ensure a productive forum. Please do contact us if you have any additional requirements or if there is anything we can do or provide in advance to facilitate your attendance. This includes, but is not limited to, access and dietary requirements.
