Moving the dial requires all of us

As one of Canada’s leading diversity and inclusion summits, we take inclusion seriously. Studies show that there are certain groups who are underrepresented in the tech sector, as such we have reserved a set number of specially priced tickets for individuals who identify with underrepresented, underestimated, or marginalized communities. Providing these groups with specially priced tickets is one component of our comprehensive inclusion strategy that is rooted in the belief that advancing inclusion requires actively encouraging and facilitating the involvement of everyone. We are committed to creating a Global Summit where individuals from all backgrounds are present, welcomed, and respected. To review the list of groups eligible for our specially priced tickets click the “buy tickets now” button at the top.
