Race at the intersection | Gender and Race | Online panel discussion

This series of UCL Engineering panel discussions look to explore how certain protected characteristics have shaped our speakers' experiences as engineers, and whether they have presented any barriers in education and career development.

In our “Race at the intersection” event series, we will explore how the impact of gender, sexual orientation, disability and socioeconomic background is magnified when one identifies as a Black and Ethnic Minority individual.


How do class, gender, sexual orientation and disability intersect with one another and how are these intensified by the addition of race?

Come and hear from our panel of guest speakers from an array of cultural backgrounds who identify with one or more of the protected characteristics. They will reflect on their experiences on how their background has shaped their education and career in Engineering.

This first event will focus on the topic of gender.

Our panel of speakers will include:

  • Yewande Akinola MBE
  • Dr Candice Majewski (UCL Mechanical Engineering)
  • Dr Mike Sulu (UCL Biochemical Engineering)

These panel discussions will take place in May and June 2021 and are open to all UCL staff, students and alumni.
