AnitaB.org is presenting “Male Ally Summit 2019” to inform advocates on how to become change agents that drive intersectional gender equity in tech. We will bring together ambassadors, mentors, sponsors, and other champions to network with peers and gain strategies to make teams feel seen, heard, and welcomed, which will result in higher levels of engagement.
In this third annual event, we will present more than 25 inspiring, impactful speakers and will give attendees the opportunity to choose sessions from multiple tracks.
November 5, 2019
Convene in NYC
Engaging keynotes and compelling topics will be covered by individuals in the community. Each person will bring their unique perspectives to these issues, and explain different ways they create impact, make change, and work to ensure their environments are inclusive and make all feel welcome — no matter a person’s color, creed, or cultural background.
Choose from the following topics:
- Advocates and Grassroots efforts
- Mentoring or Ways to uplift and share the path towards professional
- Sponsoring/ Executive Leadership/ Investment in Dreams
- Communicate your questions and concerns about DEI work to women allies
“We can all have a positive impact on the community we reside in. It takes your voice, it takes your action, and it takes believing that a great workplace culture is the right of all individuals on the team.”
At this event, we will bring together ambassadors, mentors, sponsors, and others under the umbrella “Ally” to gain information that will help them transform their teams and their companies and environments. You will leave the Summit with the skills to:
- Enable attendees to network with peers and support one another along their journeys by creating a culture where all groups feel welcomed and connected to their organization’s purpose and mission.
- Empower allies with resources and tangible next steps to make their workplaces welcoming to all.
- Educate allies on how they can be ambassadors, mentors, and sponsors to drive 50/50 intersectional gender equity in tech by 2025.
We will have early registration and late registration. This event will sell out! Max is 300 people. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get notified when tickets go on sale.
