We try and be as transparent as possible at TechExeter, and one of the ways we do that is to report back stats on our events.
What follows are a few statistics from our call for speakers for this year’s tech conference on the theme of security and hacking.
Please note: These are statistics from people who submitted talks for our conference. Not everyone answered our diversity monitoring questions. We advertised for speakers on our website, social media, and through our member network.
Whilst at this year’s AWS Summit London, I had a chance to chat with the lovely people on the We Power Tech stand.
At AWS, we believe the future of tech is every color, gender, belief, origin, and community. The future of tech is accessible, flexible, and inclusive. We all have a long way to go before realizing this future. Join the We Power Tech community to meet allies and leaders who are powering the future. Build skills, get engaged with the community, and inspire the next generation.
These pronoun badges are a great idea, and one that I think we’ll be bringing to our conferences and meetups. Even as a cis male, wearing a badge helps to raise awareness and normalise pronoun choice, which can only be a good thing!
We’ll be at Exeter Pride on the 11th May alongside ExIST, PRISM and the Institute of Physics, showcasing some VR and gaming – come say hi, and look out for our banner in the parade!
Join us for an evening of lightning talks and chat at this Almighty August edition of the Tech Exeter meetup!
