Global Diversity CFP Day


**Please ensure you register at**

Are you a member of an underrepresented or marginalised group? Have you always wanted to become a tech conference speaker?

Let 2020 be the year that you make that dream a reality!

On Saturday, January 18th 2020 we will host the third edition of global diversity CFP day at Reactor London. This is following the success of the 2019 event where 81 workshops took place!

There are numerous workshops hosted around the globe encouraging and advising newbie speakers to put together your very first talk proposal and share your own individual perspective on any subject of interest to people in tech.

This workshop will have experienced speakers on hand to:

- give you a warm, inclusive welcome in a safe space (check out our Code of Conduct which all participants must adhere to)
- mentor you with your proposal
- provide speaking advice
- and share their enthusiasm to get you to the stage!
