Presentation Details + Powerpoint Template

All speakers are required to upload their final presentation slides by Friday, April 26. In addition to providing a hard copy for accessibility purposes, we find that adding the presentations before the event helps to drive interest in attending the session.

  • On the top of the page, click “Manage and Promote Your Session”
  • Click “Add Presentation”

The Linux Foundation, in collaboration with the National Center for Women in Technology (NCWIT), has created an online course designed to teach the viewer about inclusion, diversity, and unconscious bias. We highly recommend all of our speakers watch the course to learn tips/tools to use when speaking to encourage inclusivity in presentations and messaging.
