LGBT History Month is celebrated in February and it is an annual month-long observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history and the history of gay rights and related civil rights movements. This event is hosted jointly by the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) and Building Equality (BE), the latter launching their Birmingham branch.
CIHT and BE would like to encourage Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) discussion through our guest speakers. The speakers will give an insight on their own experience as LGBT professionals in the industry and also discuss how they think CIHT and BE can help drive forward EDI in engineering / construction sectors. Their intervention will be followed by Q&A and networking.
Members and not members that work in the engineering / construction sectors.
Malcolm Holmes, Executive Director of WMRE and Director of Rail at TfWM
Naheem Ahmed, EDI Representative for Enabling Works Contract North at Laing O'Rourke and Murphy Group Joint Venture (LM-JV)
Both speakers are EDI advocates with sound experience in the matter.
