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:
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.
A few people asked if they could help us offer more diversity tickets. Yes, please! Although applicatiosn 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.
Go ahead and purchase a reduced price "Sponsor an attendee" ticket.
NOTE: once your purchase is approved, the ticket form will ask for "Attendee" name and email, but please provide your own details. We will assign the ticket randomly to one of our applicants.
The application deadline has passed
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.
If you encounter any problems or have any questions, please email us.
