To mark the occasion, the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) along with InterEngineering, will be running a panel discussion on both the engineering response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the contribution of LGBTQ+ engineers in meeting those challenges. The discussion will also examine the pandemic’s impact on diversity and inclusion in the sector.

The event begins at 6:30 UK time, and will take place over Zoom. To register visit the RAEng website.
