Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/24/2015 -- On the heels of a successful inaugural May event, the Philadelphia Chapter of Lesbians Who Tech is announcing a second Lesbians Who Tech (and friends) Philadelphia Happy Hour, taking place this July 9, 2015, from 5pm until 7pm. The City Director, CJ Bachmann of 1SEO.com Digital Agency, arranged with one of her company's many clients to reserve space at the coveted City Tap House in Philly to create another opportunity for women who work in the technology industry, or who simply love everything tech, to network, land gigs and make new connections. As such, the group invites techies of every kind to join them in Philly and discuss advancements in the technological industry, as well as happenings in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community.
While the Happy Hour officially takes place on July 9, it comes right after the conclusion of June's LGBT Pride Month. This year's celebration brought support from industries of every size and shape – from Lucky Charms to Google, and so much more. The breadth of industries that participated in showing their support was tremendous, as were the community reactions to those supportive declarations. While a minority of the reactions were negative, the advancements made in the LGBT movement are nothing to be shy about. For instance, a recent consumer survey by Google found that over 50% of consumers are more likely to do repeat business with a company that values equality, and Adweek's research has shown that business owners showing their support for gay rights can see positive effects for their company. The July Lesbians Who Tech (and friends) Philadelphia Happy Hour is the perfect opportunity for members of the community to share their insights and stories.
