Are you a member of an underrepresented or marginalised group?

Have you always wanted to become a tech conference speaker?

Let 2020 be the year that you make that dream a reality!

Call For Proposals (CFP)

Events or conferences looking for speakers start a process called "Call for Proposals". This is an invitation for anyone interested in taking part to submit their idea for a talk or workshop. Proposals are an outline of what you'd like to talk about and helps organisers choose talks for their events.

Global Diversity CFP Day is here to help you craft that proposal and reduce any worry you may have when submitting.

Event is free but bookings essential - register here.

Newcastle global diversity CFP day workshop

On Saturday 18 January 2020 the third annual Global Diversity CFP Day will take place in locations across the world, including Newcastle, Australia

There will be numerous workshops hosted around the globe encouraging and advising newbie speakers to put together your very first talk proposal and share your own individual perspective on any subject of interest to people in tech.

The Newcastle workshop will have experienced speakers on hand to:

  • give you a warm, inclusive welcome in a safe space
  • mentor you with your proposal
  • provide speaking advice
  • share their enthusiasm to get you to the stage!

Subject Matter

This workshop has no specific language, framework or process as a focus. Even if your talk isn’t even related to tech we want to hear from you too! In short, if there is something that you want to shout to the world we're here to help you get there regardless of the boundaries of technology or communities.
