Drupal Diversity & Inclusion advocates through SFDUG are hosting a Speaker Diversity Workshop to help speakers from underrepresented groups prepare to speak at conferences. This will in turn help local meetups, Drupal Camps, and even DrupalCons develop a more diverse speaker roster. The workshop helps folks bust through their impostor syndrome and develop a topic, title, pitch, bio, and outline. #DrupalSpeakerDiversity

The workshop covers: - Impostor syndrome - Finding a topic - Better speaker tips - Writing a great pitch - Creating an outline - Creating great slides - Public speaking confidence

This workshop is a great fit for you if you’ve ever felt uncomfortable about speaking at events or wanted to present but found yourself thinking: - “What would I talk about?” - “I’m not an expert in anything.”

Trainer(s): AmyJune Hineline (volkswagenchick)

Registration is now open and we would love to see you attend. If you’re from a marginalized or underrepresented group and have felt challenges around speaking at events, these workshops will help you to venture out with your first talk, or, if you’ve spoken before, to level up your skills and confidence.

If you feel as if you’ve had some tension around speaking due to an aspect of your identity that is underrepresented or marginalized in the Drupal community, we would love to see you at our Speaker Diversity Workshop.

SFDUG seeks to provide a friendly, safe environment. All participants should be able to engage in productive dialogue. They should share and learn with each other in an atmosphere of mutual respect. We require all participants adhere to the Drupal Code of Conduct. This applies to all community interaction and events.
