Google and Microsoft might be known as bitter enemies on the tech-front, but the two giants came together to launch the Intertech Diversity Forum, at the London headquarters of Skype.
The group’s founding members include Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Dell, Nokia, BAE Systems, Accenture, Avanade, Ertl Design, Made by Many, Clarity PR, PinkNews and Stonewall.
A number of London’s tech startups also attended the evening. The group is free to join and are already planning their next event in September.
The InterTech name was inspired by similar existing LGBT organisations including InterLaw, which brings together LGBT workers from the legal professions.
