Introducing... Intertech Manchester

For a decade, Intertech has slowly but surely spread it's wings across the globe bringing more and more members on our journey to champion LGBT+ diversity in the technology sector.

Today we're beyond excited to be able to announce that we now can call Manchester, the fastest-growing digital and tech hub in Europe, our latest location and second city in the UK to have an Intertech family. 🐝

To kick-off and celebrate this occasion we'd invite you to save the date as we launch Intertech Manchester on July 21st 2022 with our hosts Robert Walters.

...and of course, with this event taking place just ahead of the 'Manchester Pride' weekend we're also drawing up plans to join those city-wide celebrations too.

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.

Intertech @ GoCardless - Bingo with Charlie Hides

Join us virtually on May 27th for a very special Intertech event partnered with GoCardless and the fantastic Charlie Hides, as we come together to play Drag Queen Bingo with the Rupaul's Drag Race star.

You should expect plenty of singing, joking around and of course audience interaction. We'll be encouraging you to get together in small groups and connect with other Intertech members across the globe - in line with UK restrictions on social gatherings.

We'll also be kicking off our own Pride month celebrations on the night so are actively encouraging themed outfits and a party atmosphere. Indeed we'll be looking out for the best dressed living room and guests on the night.

We're really excited for this one and can't wait to see you there.

Intertech @ Simply Business - The Fluidity of Mental Health

Intertech and Simply Business invite you to their speaker event 'The Fluidity of Mental Health: Is there a price to being authentic?' to hear about how they're cultivating a working environment that has opened up the conversation of mental health throughout the business.

The evening will feature speakers from different disciplines, both tech & non-tech, with talks ranging from sharing personal stories of their mental health journey to discussing how we can support colleagues so they feel supported to bring their authentic selves to work.

Please join our panel discussion, led by James Brumpton (Junior DevOps Engineer) with Joanne Theodoulou (General Counsel at Simply Business & Vice Chair at the Board of Trustees for Mind) and Charlotte Butler (Managing Director of Altogether Different).

Of course, following the talks, there will be an opportunity to ask questions to the speakers and engage with other attendees.
