The biggest growth business in the developed world today is the technology industry. A good representation of the LGBTQ community in this industry is important and reflects the community's capability to participate on an equal basis with all others without discrimination.
Several LGBTQ organizations have been created to help ensure the community's participation: StartOut helps entrepreneurs to start their own business while also working to end discrimination in the technology industry through established member chapters around the world; Lesbians Who Tech is a group specifically for the Lesbian community, also through a chapter organization; and Out in Tech is a social networking agency encouraging internships and training in the sector.
Many established technology firms have in-house LGBTQ networking groups. As well, there are conferences and symposiums on a regular basis which cater specifically to the LGBTQ entrepreneurial community.
The largest of today's technology companies were started with the active participation of LGBTQ individuals. Ric Weiland was a co-founder of Microsoft, while Chris Hughes was a co-founder of Facebook. Many smaller firms started by LGBTQ communities have also been successful.

Diversity, Inclusion & the Power of Staff Networks
Central London | Thurs, 6 July | 11.00am - 4.00pm
Staff and employee networks can have a powerful impact on an organisation, helping employees from minority groups feel included and encouraging workplaces to better represent the communities they work in.
Join Westminster Briefing on 6 July to hear how the power of networks can and are being successfully supported in the workplace from thought leaders as well as the staff networks themselves.
I trust you are enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend and take advantage of this beautiful sunshine. June will see some changes and notably we are on tour again! We are departing from The Village to pastures fresh and new.
I am looking at venues at the moment that can host us through the year in various location. I recently became a member of Boisdale and still negotiating some good deals for us, we shall go back to Beaufort House Club where on Tuesdays the bottle of Champagne are only £25! on King's Road!
There are other Clubs that I joined too like this little gem in Kings Cross called the Crescent.
I am awaiting confirmation at the moment for our June event on the 15th for the GlassHouse in Camden that is just by the Canal and fully air conditioned, we shall also go back to some old favourites like the Roof Top at the Hilton by the Tower of London and other exclusive venues.
Lots more to come!
Some of you asked at the last meeting about Royal Ascot, if you look below there is a link for it and perhaps next year, we shall organise a trip to it together.
For September, I am introducing an amazing Gay Trip to India! Yes, please see below for more information and click on the image for the full program that is on our newsletter already. Don't forget to check it up, it is full of special offers, freebies and other events.
I am also planning to make a table or two for the Whitefriars Club 150th Anniversary in February 2018 at the Palace of Westminster, it is going to be £200 per person so best save your pennies from now, Champagne reception and meal with fine wines in splendid surrounding in a place that is not open to the public.
