It's not okay that the speakers chosen by conferences, debates and panels are often drawn from only one segment of society.

This excludes valuable perspectives, experiences, talent and people from conference platforms and forecloses the creative potential of our industries.

Our goal is to ensure that the panelists and speakers on every stage reflect the social diversity of the intended audience and our communities. 

As speakers, we can choose to ONLY participate in events that foster social inclusion and diversity of thought and human expression.

This means when we are invited to speak at an event, we ask about the diversity of the speaker line-up and we only agree to speak when the line-up is diverse.
