Alliance of Channel Women, Xposure, Cloud Girls and channelWise are teaming up to shine a light on individuals and influencers in the tech channel who are members of groups that are under-represented on the industry’s stages and media platforms.
Why is this important? As the tech channel becomes more diverse, we believe the experts highlighted at technology events and in the media should evolve, too. Showcasing diverse talent enables new voices to be heard, different perspectives to be shared, role models to be elevated and minds to be opened.
What’s the problem? Great question. What we found is that many tech channel event organizers and media properties want to feature diverse experts, but struggle to find them.
What’s the solution? The Diverse Tech Speaker Directory was created to connect events with experts. But we need your help to make it a success. See below to discover three ways you can help.

If you’re part of an under-represented group (e.g., women, people of color, LGBTQ+, veterans, people with disabilities, etc.), add your speaker profile to our directory.
