Rainbow Engineering Network

Our Rainbow Engineering Network aims to provide support for rainbow students and staff in the Faculty of Engineering.

Rainbow Engineering is the faculty’s LGBTITakatāpui+ network (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, takatāpui, and more), set up by and for Rainbow students to provide support, advocacy, and opportunities to socialise and network within the faculty and industry.

The University of Auckland’s Equity Policy, which includes LGBTQITakatāpui+) students and staff as an equity group, forms part of our commitment to supporting all those with the potential to succeed at New Zealand's leading university.

Our University offers a range of initiatives aimed at providing support for LGBTQITakatāpui+ students and staff, and is committed to providing an inclusive study and work environment that removes unnecessary, unlawful and unfair barriers.

Within our faculty, the Rainbow Engineering Network provides:

  • Opportunities to meet and connect with fellow LGBTQITakatāpui+ students and staff, along with their friends
  • Information about services, news and events
  • A voice for LGBTQITakatāpui+ students and staff in Engineering
