 TALKS BY AND FOR THE DIGITAL COMMUNITY
NEXT EVENT: DECEMBER 4TH, 2019 IN PORTLAND, OREGON

when it comes to representation, Technology conferences have a diversity problem

 

We can address this challenge by creating space for women* and other underrepresented groups of speakers to get their start. 

We believe that the world is better when we can learn from the brilliance of the many, not just the few. 300 Seconds events give our peers, and in particular women, a means of gaining confidence and experience speaking in public.

We give new speakers the opportunity to gain confidence and improve speaking skills in a safe, supportive environment. Our veteran speakers volunteer their time to sharpen up presentations, provide support, connections, and tips on shaping a personal brand. 

*By women we mean all women (trans, intersex and cis), all those who experience oppression as women (including non-binary and gender non-conforming people) and all those who identify as women.
