We’re so proud of the diversity of speakers and topics at our Conf, including:

  • tackling bias in building algorithms and apps
  • the power of technology in conflict affected countries
  • creating ethical and inclusive products and services
  • tips to strengthen your personal brand on social media
  • how (not) to talk about diversity in tech
  • explaining open data standards
    and much more!
