Re-Engineering Pride Webinar Series – Going Beyond the Rainbow

As Pride Month unfolds, many companies adopt logos reflecting the pride or progress pride flag. While these gestures are important, they sometimes raise questions about the depth of commitment to the LGBTQ+ community, leading to accusations of pinkwashing or rainbow-washing.

At InterEngineering, we believe that impactful change in diversity and inclusion goes beyond symbols. It’s about creating genuine and lasting initiatives within our workplaces.

This month, as part of our ongoing webinar series, we’re focusing on moving beyond the rainbow flag to discuss actionable steps that engineering organisations can take to foster inclusivity.

We’re thrilled to invite you to our upcoming webinar, where we will delve into meaningful discussions on how to integrate genuine diversity and inclusion practices into your professional environment. This session is not just about celebrating Pride Month, but about exploring how we can make a real difference throughout the year.

The webinar will cover a range of topics aimed at creating sustainable inclusivity within the engineering sector. Our speakers will share their expertise on effective strategies and initiatives that go beyond mere symbolic support. Whether you’re an industry veteran or just beginning your journey in engineering, this session promises valuable insights that can help you enhance your workplace culture.

We believe in creating spaces where everyone feels valued and included. This webinar is part of our broader commitment to supporting the InterEngineering community and fostering environments where diversity thrives.
