Committee

How to Join the Committee


We are always on the lookout for people who can contribute some of their spare time to running InterEngineering. We are especially interested in members who will help increase the diversity of our committee to allow us to better reflect our members.

We meet by monthly teleconference in the evening; so you do not need to be in London to join.

If you want to help make InterEngineering a success, then we want to hear from you...

Midlands

Co-Chair

Fiona Connor

Geotechnical Engineer

Fiona works in geotechnical engineering, and is in a predominantly construction site based role. A recent addition to the InterEngineering team, and co-chair of the Midlands Regional Group. She discovered InterEngineering via the website, after having researched diversity and representation of the LGBT+ community within the field of engineering, having felt there was a lot that needed to be done to promote this. She was not aware of another LGBT identifying engineer before getting in contact with InterEngineering and attending their events and now knows she’s not the only one! She’s therefore now keen to get involved in spreading the word, to help create a friendly, inclusive and open working environment for all, especially in the Midlands.

Co-Chair

Charlotte Robinson

Mechanical Engineer

Charlotte is employed in fleet maintenance for a train operating company, working in a technical engineering role to improve the reliability of trains in the West Midlands.
She discovered InterEngineering through word of mouth after looking to set up a group catering specifically to transgender and intersex engineers as she had a strong network of transgender friends in engineering, but decided that it would be best to put her efforts into InterEngineering.
Charlotte hopes to create an inclusive environment for all, but is particularly interested in increasing transgender visibility in Engineering.
