LGBTQ+ & Allies Endowment In addition to supporting AIChE events and activities that promote inclusivity of LGBTQ engineers at all career stages, funds raised in the campaign will subsidize a newly launched AIChE’s LGBTQ+ & Allies Online Community, which is now in its pilot phase. Building on this, the initiative aims to expand its reach to recognize students, professionals, and companies that show exemplary efforts in LGBTQ+ & Allies causes within the chemical engineering profession, as well as to create greater diversity-and inclusion-related educational opportunities for members and industry allies. AIChE member Eric Reiner helped launch this initiative with a $50,000 gift announced at the LGBTQ+ & Allies reception in Minneapolis last year. You can learn more about his gift and hear his speech. Join Eric in supporting this initiative with your gift.
