Intertech @ Pride in London 2021

We're delighted to confirm that the Intertech team have submitted our application to take part in the the UK’s biggest Pride parade - Pride in London. The parade will take place on Sept 11th 2021 after the original parade was cancelled due to the global pandemic and we're very excited about what this might look like.

We're still very much in the early planning stages with many questions unanswered around our Pride celebrations. Naturally, we will of course be following UK Government advice with all of our events and participation in the parade.

Intertech & London Bisexual Network

Join us and the London Bisexual Network, a professional network focused primarily on building awareness of and support for bisexuality in the City of London whilst remaining inclusive of allies and other members of the LGT+ community. We'll discuss the importance of not overlooking the "B" in LGBT+ as technology firms focus on LGBT+ inclusion.

This lunchtime session will bring a range of panellists together to discuss bisexuality, bi-erasure and biphobia, and how LGT+ and other allies can make a difference to their "B" counterparts.

The session will take place on Zoom provided through Macquarie - you'll be invited to register for this platform upon registration at the link below.
