AECOM sustainability manager Lucy Bradbury [pictured above] is named a Top 10 Inspirational Leader by British LGBT Awards, one of the UK’s most publicised LGBTQ+ events. The Awards celebrate the achievements of campaigners, celebrities and personalities who work to improve the lives of LGBTQ+ people.

“Working in an industry that hasn’t historically had many diverse visible role models, I decided to be the change I wanted to see as a queer woman in construction. AECOM’s commitment to fostering an equitable, diverse and inclusive culture enables our LGBTQ+ initiatives to thrive," says Lucy.

“I’m honoured to be recognised by the prestigious LGBT Awards for my work to promote inclusion at AECOM and my involvement with Building Equality. I remain passionate about advancing LGBTQ+ inclusion within the built environment sector.”
