EDF Energy, InterEngineering and Stonewall hosted an event to celebrate LGBT+ Pride month in June 2016. Delegates toured EDF Energy’s nuclear power station at Hinkley Point B and attended an afternoon LGBT+ conference and workshop at Cannington Court, EDF Energy’s flagship training, learning and development centre in Somerset.
The aim of the day was to bring together representatives from members of the engineering community to discuss and collaborate on LGBT+ inclusion across the sector. Delegates included representatives from Airbus, Amec Foster Wheeler, Atkins, Babcock, Balfour Beatty, Dyson, EDF Energy, Fraser Nash, Hitachi, InterEngineering, Laing O’Rourke, Network Rail, Parsons Brinkerhoff, Rolls Royce, Stonewall and Tata Steel, and included representation from across the LGBT+ and Ally / Supporter communities.
This report shares key findings from the six group discussions that took place as part of the event to explore key LGBT+ themes in the engineering sector.
