New Dates and Ticket Pricing For Tech Inclusion Conference

Additional Resources

One of the key visions behind the Tech Inclusion conference is to create an event that allows tech companies/startups, individuals, consultants, diverse communites/organizations and thought leaders to share their solutions, lesson learned and case studies around tech diversity and inclusion. We originally set an ambitious date of June 12-13th. We opened call for speakers and reached out to key speakers and sponsors who we knew that were already doing amazing work. Since our original call for speakers, we have received over 90 call for speaker applications and continue to receive positive response from the tech community about the need for the Tech Inclusion conference. The initial feedback was great but we realized we were competing with a lot of conferences and other events around Apple’s WWDC the week of June 12-13.

Therefore we have moved the date of the Tech Inclusion Conference to September 11-12, 2015. The Tech Inclusion conference will still take place at Galvanize in San Francisco.

We also tested various pricing models for the conference, as we understand that everyone may not be able to attend due to financial reasons. We now have two pricing levels, one at $100 for Bootstrapped Entrepreneurs, Students, Non-profits and one at $300 for Series A+, Corporate Registration. For college students or if anyone would like to apply for a scholarship we have a limited amount of scholarship tickets. If interested, you can apply via the Tech Inclusion Scholarship Application form. As it takes a lot of resources to host a two data multi-track conference, we’re hopeful to make more scholarships available with sponsors support.

In the upcoming weeks we will announce more speakers to join the list from participating companies such as Google For Entrepreneurs, 500 Startups, Pinterest, Yelp and Twitter. We’re truly excited to go from just talking about diversity and inclusion in tech to show what solutions are being created and what’s working!

We would like to thank our early sponsors, Change Catalyst, Yelp, Kapor Center for Social Impact, Galvanize, Softlayer and all of our media sponsors.
