Together, we can make engineering more inclusive.

 

We believe that one of the most effective ways that our organization can have an impact is through partnering with queer-friendly companies, other non-profit organizations, and engineering student organizations.

We thank those who sponsor and partner with us. These relationships have been mutually beneficial: our partners receive training on matters of diversity & inclusivity, while our members grow their professional networks.
