Please provide names, affiliations, titles, emails.
Your answer
Please review your proposed speakers/ facilitators. Have you considered aspects of representation, diversity, and inclusion? *
This is a core value of MERL Tech. We would like to reduce/avoid "all male panels" (see http://allmalepanels.tumblr.com/) and those that lack representation and/or diversity of voice and experience. For example, if you work internationally, consider including someone from a country office or implementing partner as a speaker/facilitator. Please contact us if you have questions....
Do any of your speakers/facilitators require travel support in order to attend? *
Please indicate if participation is contingent on receiving travel funding. We have an extremely limited number of travel stipends (as in 2 or 3) and will not be able to meet all requests. Please contact us with any questions about this.
