InterEngineering is a volunteer run organisation that aims to connect, inform and empower LGBT+ engineers and their supporters. InterEngineering work closely with government, institutes and companies to change the engineering landscape to be more diverse and inclusive.
Please come along to learn more about the challenges faced by LGBT+ engineers, the support and opportunities that are available, to meet new people and widen your network. There will be a range of speakers from different industries and backgrounds, including BuroHappold and Diversity in Design, and we will make sure there is plenty of pizza!
So we can get an idea of numbers, please let us know if you would like to attend using the Doodle poll. We only need to know numbers, so if you would rather not add your name just write Participant.

Who should attend
This is an event for all, not just for LGBT+ engineers, not just engineers, and not just university students/staff – anyone with an interest in LGBT+ equality in engineering is welcome.
There is a level access to the venue and the main door opens automatically. The automatic door is push pad activated and the width of the door opening is 110cm. The room the event is in is on the same level as the main door down a short corridor. Unfortunately there is not a hearing assistance system and the door for the room and the corridor doors are not push pad activated, but we will be on hand to help where necessary. There is an accessible toilet available close to the room the event is in. For more information please do not hesitate to get in touch.
