Atkins have officially launched their LGBT+ Network with a fantastic event supported by their Chairman, Allan Cook, CBE.

I was privileged to be invited along to this internal event to represent Diversity Jobs and get the opportunity to learn about the great work that Atkins do to support their LGBT+ colleagues.

Stonewall and InterEngineering were also present and added an interesting perspective and insight, which will be of great benefit to Atkins.

It was fantastic to hear that Atkins want everyone to feel fully included and acknowledge that talent comes in all forms, so we must look at other opportunities to improve and open up the talent pool, rather than stay with traditional approaches - just because that's how we've always done it!

It was great to see senior sponsorship, as this will really drive the network forward and the video that Allan played really hit a chord as you could feel the emotion in the room.

Well done Atkins! I for one will be keenly watching this space to see where the Network goes next!
