We have had such an overwhelming amount of interest in the topic of diversity and inclusion we thought we should throw it open and invite you all to contribute to the discussion and share your expertise. Hurrah!

Diversity and inclusion is an important part of the digital charity ecosystem, we're keen to do this better and to learn from each other, join in at the Unconference.

:: Why unconference? ::
In the spirit of openness, an unconference allows us to collaborate, share and learn in a way that fits the needs of the room. There’s no structured programme, it’s an opportunity to create sessions and build our own agenda on the day.

It’s also a great chance to meet and network with your peers in an informal environment.

:: Perhaps you could lead a session? ::
- present something you’re working on
- speak about something that interests you
- pose a problem or question to unpack
- challenge with debate
- run a workshop

Anything goes as long as it relates to diversity, inclusion and charities in a digital way.

This can mean working on digital in an inclusive way as well as delivering to audiences inclusively online. This is more about people, processes, and organisations’ approach and mindset than about technology and tools.
