About the event

In the run up to Leeds Pride, Building Equality are hosting a networking fundraiser event for local charities TransLeeds and Leeds Trans Pride.

TransLeeds is a grass roots, peer support organisation that supports and is run by trans, non-binary and gender expansive people in Leeds and the surrounding areas. They run support groups, social events, a binder library, offer advocacy, and provide training.

Leeds Trans Pride is a community-led organisation by trans people for trans people who hold an annual march in Leeds, along with a programme of events such as craft days, film screening, talks, gigs, performance nights, exhibitions, boardgaming days, sober events, karaoke nights and much more.

We have two amazing speakers lined up who will talk about their experience of being trans in the engineering sector: 

  • Karen McShane, Director at Kevin McShane Ltd and Immediate Past President of CIHT
  • Pascale Harper, Technical Head of Process Engineering (Water) at AECOM

This event is open to everyone working in the construction industry, built environment and property sectors regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. This event is free to attend, with food, alcoholic drinks and soft drinks provided. However, TransLeeds and Leeds Trans Pride will be present and it is greatly appreciated if attendees make donations on the evening.
