As part of our increased commitment to inclusivity, we hope to reach a more diverse audience with each event. This time, we're encouraging applications for one of our diversity tickets.
What is a Diversity ticket?
It is essential that we reach a more diverse audience. We can and should encourage attendance from practitioners representative of minority groups under-represented in the industry. Offering diversity tickets is one way of demonstrating this commitment. On the Diversity Tickets website we suggest we'll offer 30 tickets, but we're actively seeking to offer more with ticket matching and sponsorship.
Great! Hopefully, we've made this easy. We'll ask ten simple questions, beginning with contact information. We'll then ask about your main areas of interest, what you'd hope to gain from attending our conference, and what most excites you about it. Finally, we'll ask what makes you a good candidate for a diversity ticket.
Applications will be accepted until 9 November 2018, and successful applicants will be drawn at random. If selected you will be contacted via email to claim your free ticket no later than 16 November 2018.
We've no idea how many applications we'll get, but we'll try to set aside plenty of tickets so that if you're unsuccessful, and we sell out, we can still offer you a priced ticket.
Our goal has always been to push the digital design agenda forward; to provide platforms from where those who value design can make themselves heard. When we work together and solve problems together we are stronger; able to exert more significant influence, and have a say in the future of our work. We strive to foster safe and inclusive environments and push for greater diversity in tech.
