Want help with your talk proposal?

In 2016 a number of our speakers successfully came through our Diversity CFP Workshops. We've taken this workshop concept and started a global movement to improve the diversity of speakers at ALL tech events!

The best way to get support with your proposal to ScotlandJS (or any other event) is to attend a workshop.

If you have any questions or would like a mentor to work with you on your proposal get in touch.

Diversity Programme

In 2018 we're committing to providing 30 diversity tickets to people from local underrepresented groups!

Our Diversity programme in 2016 was a huge success with the support of attendees and many companies!

💛 💛 💛 Thank you 💛 💛 💛



Childcare

We know how hard it is for parents to attend events like this while juggling childcare. To help with that we will have onsite childcare during the conference!

The law in Scotland around childcare is very strict to ensure safety and our childcare provider has already performed a full risk assessment.

If you would like to make use of the childcare facilities we need to know by June 1st 2018 for staffing purposes so please get in touch.
