Inspiring Engineers with Roma Agrawal, London

About this event

The fourth talk in the 2018 Inspiring Engineers programme will be delivered by Roma Agrawal, Associate Director at AECOM and author of 'Built'.

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.

Each month, a speaker will give an informal topic on how they made it in their career. 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.
