What’s it Like Being LGBT in Engineering? – Positive Video Profiles

InterEngineering Campaigns

People still think of engineering as a profession reserved only for white heterosexual men. But the industry is changing, with more women and people from ethnic minority backgrounds and the LGBT community all making a valuable contribution to the profession.

2017 marks 50 years since the decriminalisation of male homosexuality in England and Wales. To celebrate this, InterEngineering has partnered with Mott MacDonald and the Royal Academy of Engineering to produce a series of videos profiling LGBT engineers talking openly about their experiences of the profession and sharing their personal stories. The aim is to show those thinking of becoming engineers that being LGBT is not a barrier to a happy and successful career.
