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.
We're extremely grateful to Shopify, our Primary Diversity Tickets Sponsor, for offering a number of tickets.
Our sincere thanks also to the following generous companies and individuals:
Faculty • A Book Apart • Naz Hamid • Ataul Munim • Jack Osborne • Simon Wilson • Stuart Frisby • Filip Hnízdo • Kyle Ridolfo • David Hughes • Jonathan Stephens • Dan Rubin • Tim Hopkins
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.
The application deadline has passed, and twenty-five applicants wil be attending.
We invited applications from 13 September to 9 November 2018. We promoted the initiative as best we could, including on the Diversity Tickets website, but apologise if you missed out. If we receive more ticket sponsors we will invite the remaining applicants, and invite further applications if necessary.
As the event is imminent, sponsored tickets are no longer available.
A few people asked if they could help us offer more diversity tickets. Yes, please! Although applications have ended, we still need more sponsors to invite more applicants.
You'll get a text credit on this page, on our blog, in our publication, and visibility on the stage during the conference. You'll also be giving someone a fantastic opportunity.
If you encounter any problems or have any questions, please email us.
