** Workshop: Speaking at your first tech conference **

Global Diversity CFP Day is a global event happening in more than 70 cities at the same time, with the goal to help increasing the diversity of tech conference speakers. If you are part of an underrepresented group in tech and would like to change this situation by speaking at your first tech conference, this workshop if for you.

The workshop will cover topics like:

1. Choosing the perfect topic for your talk
2. Writing a talk proposal and self-introduction
3. Structuring your talk's content
4. Tips to nail on the day of the talk

We will have experienced speakers as mentors for this event.

This is a bilingual workshop and we will have English and Japanese tracks, so please choose your preferred language when registering for this event on the Connpass page.

** Who can come to this event? **

This workshop is not specific to any programming languages or frameworks, we welcome people from all backgrounds related to tech, including design and management. Skill level and years of experience are also irrelevant, so please don't worry about it.

"Diversity" includes various aspects such as religion, race, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, body shape, nationality and ability.

Japanese nationals are considered a minority at international conferences. So we also welcome those who have experience speaking in Japanese conferences but would like the challenge of speaking in English at international conferences (or vice-versa). Even if you are not confident in your English/Japanese proficiency, our bilingual mentors will help you.
