Join us on Thurs 8th Feb to kick-off the new year with a rundown on what's on the horizon for Intertech, our members and the ever changing tech sector that we live and work in.

With the topic of 'What's hot and what's not in 2018...' we've pulled together a real spectrum of speakers who are eager to give their insight and opinions.

Furthermore, we're inviting any of you to take to also take to the floor for a few informal minutes and tell us what has got you excited for the year ahead? Be it something you're working on, something you've seen or maybe just a hunch. Simply sign-up to attend as normal but also check the 'I've got something to share!' option if you want to contribute.

We're also delighted to once again be hosted by our friends over at Capco, who have very generously ensured that drinks and pizza will be in ample supply, and in typical Intertech fashion we'll extend an invite to all attending to join us afterwards in a venue to be confirmed.

So sign-up now for what promises to be an evening full of insight, opportunity and a fantastic chance to catch-up with your fellow Intertech members.

InterTech @ MozFest House - Digital Inclusion

Posted on behalf of InterTech LGBT+ Diversity Forum & MozFest
InterTech & Mozilla Festival invite you to a networking event as part of MozFest 2017.

Mozilla is fueling the movement to ensure the Internet is a global public resource, open and accessible to all. The Internet's role in economic opportunity, creativity, personal connection, free expression and democracy around the world has made it a fundamental part of our modern lives. Yet today, censorship, surveillance, walled gardens and apathy are putting the open Internet at risk.

Join us in a safe space to meet up, network and build the vital connections we need to ensure we can work together to build a more open, respectful and inclusive web for everyone.

Join us for an evening at the Royal Society of Arts, as part of the MozFest House week of programming, see the entire programme online, to hear from speakers on the subject of digital inclusion; one of the major spaces in MozFest this year. The focus of the talks will be to promote ways we can develop and promote safe spaces on the internet which we hope will fuel the discussion for the rest of the evening.

If you'd like to attend please sign-up on the link below and take advantage of this incredible opportunity to network and learn from one another.
