Give out to Celebrate PRIDE and Allyship

At AIChE®, we are committed to fostering an equitable, diverse, and inclusive profession. 

Through programs like the LGBTQ+ & Allies Initiative, an online community established in 2017 for LGBTQ+ & Ally engineers to network and share best practices, we are leading the way. However, to obtain LGBTQ+ equal representation and allyship in the profession, further action is needed.

In honor of LGBTQ+ History Month in October, the AIChE Foundation is excited to announce the LGBTQ+ & Allies Endowment steering committee underwrote a $10,000 matching gift challenge, Celebrating PRIDE and Allyship. Together, we are committed to developing and providing resources, Safe Zone Ally trainings, and hosting networking opportunities to strengthen our community and profession. 

Supporting the LGBTQ+ & Allies Fund is a key focus of my personal philanthropic efforts.” Roger Whitley, steering committee member  

All gifts made during the challenge will be matched dollar for dollar - doubling your impact up to $10,000. 

Generous gifts of all sizes will be used to expand and enhance programming and networking events to reach LGBTQ+ & Ally students and professionals. With your support, we will highlight the extraordinary work of LGBTQ+ engineers and continue to lead the way. 

Join us in being the change with your gift today in celebration of LGBTQ+ History Month.
