#IWDTO 2017: Call for Speakers

In our six years as a successful monthly meetup in Toronto, #DevTO has worked diligently to organize timely, compelling, and engaging events for our tech-minded and developer community.

In 2015, we set out to create one of our biggest and most poignant events yet: International Women’s Day Talks (#IWDTO). A day we celebrate and set a stage for women in tech to gather, speak and cheer with their allies.

Past #IWDTO speakers have included talented women in technical roles at companies like TwittertwilioBitstrips, and Mozilla.

In March 2017, we renew our vows to support the movement, and hope you might join us too. We’d like to hear from you: we’re opening up a Call For Proposals to women in tech for our #IWDTO event. Are you in North America? Are you available March 6th, 2017? The primary theme is inspiration, with pinches of experience. Given the stage, what would you share with your community? That will be your job.

Our job? We will take care of all arrangements from transportation to accommodation. We will also provide a safe, inviting and inclusive space for you to speak and present. Lastly, Toronto is one of the most diverse cities in the world. As the fourth largest metropolitan area in North America, we have citizens from all corners of the globe. It’s important that our speakers reflect the fact.

We look forward to hearing from you.
