Nike Folayan will be the fifth speaker of the 2018 Inspiring Engineers programme.

The talk will take place at One Great George Street. Nike is currently Associate Director and the Technical Discipline Leader for Communications and Control within the Railways Division of WSP, an engineering consultancy where she leads a team of telecommunications engineers working on a variety of projects within the transport industry including railways and the highways projects in the UK, Australia, Middle East and Africa. Nike has also worked for Parsons Brinckerhoff, Mott MacDonald and Harada Limited. Nike's interest lies in the evolution of Radio and IP Networks and its application within the transport industry.

Nike Folayan chairs AFBE-UK a not for profit organisation which aims at challenging and inspiring people of BME origin to enter the field of Engineering and make enhanced contributions to their respective fields, and to local communities using Engineering as a platform. She is also a Trustee at the Engineering Development Trust (EDT), on the Advisory panel of CareersReady at Lambeth College, on the diversity panel of the Science Council and the Royal Academy of Engineering, Transport for London Diversity Steering group, on the Strategic Planning Committee of University of the West of England and very recently joined engineering industrial panel at the University of Kent.

Launched in 2017 by the ICE London and South East England Diversity Taskforce, the Inspiring Engineers programme of events invites industry leaders to speak on how they have achieved success in their fields. The series will celebrate diversity of engineers and showcase the different career paths within civil engineering. 'Inspiring Engineers' aims to inspire a new generation of civil engineers to follow in their footsteps.

Given in an informal setting, the events will encourage attendees to ask the questions they have always wanted to ask and share their own experiences of the industry.

Come along, network and be inspired by other civil engineers from across the industry.

A light breakfast will be available.
