To champion LGBTQ+ inclusion in the engineering field, AECOM will be marching together this London Pride taking place 7th July with networking group InterEngineering. This will be the third year running at the London march for AECOM.
Joining other leading firms from the engineering and construction industry, AECOM will be showing its solidarity in challenging stereotypes associated within the industry. As well as London Pride, AECOM recently took part in both the Edinburgh and Manchester Pride marches.
To align with Pride month, AECOM has launched DiverCity, the company’s new employee-led lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, queer plus (LGBTQ+) working group. DiverCity will provide a transparent and accessible support network for staff, as well as organise networking events and discussions around the UK and Ireland.
David Barwell, Chief Executive, UK & Ireland, AECOM, said: “AECOM is proud to be marching this Saturday in celebration of diversity and equality across the construction industry. Understanding and celebrating the diversity we have across our teams is an integral part of what makes our business a success.”
AECOM is also holding an event in Manchester on 11th July with InterEngineering to celebrate International Pride in STEM. The day will include guest speakers from Diversity Role Models and London Queer Collective, and presentations about AECOM’s Diversity and Inclusion, as well as a great networking opportunity.
