We believe real progress in the tech industry is only possible through the inclusion of diverse thinking, opinions, and viewpoints.
Wasm I/O can be a great opportunity to get together in person to chat and collaborate, but sometimes the cost can be a hardship. To help with the cost of attending the conference, Wasm I/O will offer diversity scholarships.
We are hoping to attract under represented groups who either are software developers interested in WebAssembly, or students looking to learn more about WebAssembly.
Applicants for a diversity ticket have to fulfill the below conditions:
Must be a member of an underrepresented group in tech — this includes, but is not limited to: people of colour, LGBTQIA+ people, women and disabled people or be unable to attend without financial assistance (e.g. students)
-Must be available to attend both days of the event (23&24 March 2023)
-Must be 18 years of age or older
-Must agree to follow our code of conduct
-Recipients are responsible for arranging their own travel and accomodation
The sponsorship ticket includes admission to all talks and catering during the two days of the conference.
The deadline to apply is 15th Feb 2023 Those accepted will be notified by 20th Feb 2023
The organizers’ decision will be final and cannot be appealed.
