ICE Director General, Nick Baveystock said:
“At a time when many people are feeling scared and afraid, after nights of violence and unrest in the US, we should remember what we stand for as a society and a profession. We stand, not just today but every day, for making the world a better place, supporting those who need our help, and standing by those who suffer discrimination and bias.
“Our Institution has, for many years, benefited from the involvement of people of all backgrounds, genders and races as we champion the relevance and importance of civil engineering and infrastructure to everyday lives. We stand with all our colleagues around the world in condemning all forms of racism, inequality and bias and will continue to work with everyone, both inside and outside our profession, to champion what is right and just.”
