Brussels / 3 & 4 February 2018


Global Diversity CFP Day

Advance registration needed.

On Saturday 3rd February 2018 there will be numerous workshops hosted around the globe encouraging and advising newbie speakers to put together your very first talk proposal and share your own individual perspective on any subject of interest to people in tech. Mozilla and the Mozilla TechSpeakers will bring this global event to Brussels during the first day of FOSDEM, and during the workshop will also provide CFP help and mentoring to any of the FOSDEM participants.

Global Diversity CFP Day is an event happening across the globe, simultaneously in 40+ cities on the 3rd of February. The Brussels event is organized at FOSDEM as the libre conference/community gathering and the GDCFPDay dates coincide happening on the same weekend. The Brussels event is organized by the Mozilla TechSpeakers, a community program by Mozilla for empowering and improving the skills of community public speakers in Mozilla's open-source community.


Attending the CFP workshop is completely free but subject to registration. Please get your workshop ticket from the workshop ticket registration, and please don't forget to fill out the ticket-questionnaire, so we can make sure we can provide you with the best workshop experience with minimal distractions so you can concentrate on your improvement!

If the initial tickets run out, don't worry, we are reserving some workshop places for first-time speakers and members of under represented groups, so be sure to apply for the waitlist ticket and keep an eye on your mailbox, we will get back to you when we have some extra spots open up.
