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!

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.
