LGBTQ+ Network

AtkinsRéalis values LGBTQ+ inclusivity. We have our own staff network call Equilibrium which was formed by employees and is striving to make a positive impact on the well-being of colleagues as well as help us to make a tangible difference in areas that are important to our LGBTQ+ community, not just within the company, but industry wide. We are a member of the Building Equalities group, a cross industry wide group aimed at making a positive impact to those who identify as LGBTQ+ in the construction industry.

The aim of the network is to continue to raise the profile of diversity and inclusion. Our goals are to promote the acceptance and wellbeing of LGBTQ+ employees and assist in framing company policy. We intend to provide a support and social network by hosting events across the country and in conjunction with other networks. We want to help people to be themselves at work.

Since the network launch in summer 2016, the network has taken part in many events including London and Birmingham Pride marches, hosting industry wide seminars around mental health in the LGBTQ+ community and attended LGBTQ+ careers fairs.
