We are building a public list of Kenyan female panelists because it's 2016 and manels (male only panels) are not going to cut it anymore.
Are you that great woman who knows her stuff or you'd like to nominate another woman? We'd love to hear from you. Please provide the details about you or your nominee (be sure to let your nominee know that you are doing this) and let's get serious about saying no to manels in Kenya.
Also please spread the message by sharing this link (widely), AND IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SPEAKERS FOR YOUR EVENT / PANEL, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Travel and accommodation are typically covered by the organizer.
5. Are there training opportunities for novice speakers?
