Agile 2020 Speaker Diversity Initiative

Apply for funding to enable you to present a session at Agile2020 in Orlando

Before you start, here are a few things that you should know:

  • This program has been created to broaden the diversity of presenters at Agile2020
  • The program has a total budget of $25,000
  • The funds are intended to cover the expenses of presenters who would be unable to attend the conference without financial support
  • Your submission(s) to Agile2020 will be evaluated in exactly the same way as every other submission
  • We will award funding to presenters who have applied to this program only if their submission(s) have been accepted by the program team
  • The deadline for applying for financial support is February 9th, 2020, and decisions will be made in early March
  • (If you have already registered at the Agile Alliance website, please tell us the email address you used. If you haven't registered yet, please tell us the address that you will use.)
  • (The definition of diversity that we’re using is extremely broad: "Diversity is any dimension that can be used to differentiate groups and people from one another. In a nutshell, it's about empowering people by respecting and appreciating what makes them different.")
  • (All accepted presenters receive conference registration and accommodation at the conference hotel, as described on the website. Please tell us what additional expenses you would need to have covered if any.)
