The goal of this repo is to showcase conference proposals from successful speakers. In doing so, we want to make conference submissions more accessible and less intimidating for aspiring speakers of all levels.
A note on diversity
Often in the tech industry, we showcase the same type of people over and over. This increases the likelihood that we also showcase the same ideas and fail to include other viewpoints.
A great way to increase diversity of thought is to increase the diversity of experience. Because of that, this project is geared towards showcasing successful speakers of all gender identities and cultural backgrounds.
It's possible that we'll hold off on adding certain speakers to this list as we attempt to encourage submissions from other speakers, to maintain a diverse collection group.
