WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Don’t just take our word for it… see what attendees had to say about what they liked most about DEITECH 2020

Screen-Shot-2020-08-30-at-9.21.49-PM.png

" The content was mostly new, and when not new, it was approached in an eye-opening way; and the networking opportunities were as phenomenal as the presenters and content. Oh, and the resources! The books and other resources offered during the conference were amazing. I'm trying to prioritize the books, so I won't go broke trying to purchase them all. "

" The content really was the showstopper, and I was thrilled to have access to it after the conference because I couldn't attend everything I wanted to. "

" The speakers/content were outstanding. They all provided insight as well as practical take-aways to implement following the conference. I also liked the ability to engage the speakers as well as fellow participants in discussions. I made several new connections as a result… Thank you! "

" I loved hearing all the panelists and meeting like-minded individuals at other tech companies. It was inspiring to be among all that energy. "

" Exceptionally well-done conference - from the incredible quality of the speakers and keynotes to the fantastic incorporation of networking throughout the event. The "tables" feature at the kickoff event really set the stage for prioritization of networking and connection.  Watching the video TOGETHER at kickoff really brought us all into a shared headspace to launch the event. This was an incredibly well-thought-out event. "

" The opportunity to hear from diverse perspectives about the challenges and opportunities for DEI in the Tech industry, especially for the BIPOC community. "
