Free evening event.
We’re dedicated to diversity, inclusion and even more so—equal opportunity. We realize that buying a ticket to a conference for many isn’t a trivial expense, but it can be a turning point in someone’s career.
We’re committed to bringing in as many individuals who couldn’t attend otherwise as possible. We want you to feel like you belong and build a lasting, inclusive, safe community. As organisers, we see it as our responsibility to help diversify the face of the Australian tech industry. We strongly encourage members of underrepresented groups to apply.
Please note that the scholarships cover conference registration only, so you will have to arrange travel and accommodation if you live outside of Melbourne, Australia.
Applicants for a free Opportunity Program ticket have to fulfill at least one of the below requirements:
It’s important to remember that:
How to apply
Applications close: 31st August
Application notification: 2nd Septmeber
Our approach to diversity and inclusion is multidimensional, spanning much further than the Opportunity Ticket program.
We provide comprehensive information about our Call for Submissions process. We actively reach out to underrepresented individuals encouraging them to partake in our conference. Not everyone wants to be in the spotlight of open submissions, we recognise this and provided an alternate pathway for speaker submissions through an In-House selection panel.
DDD Melbourne operates under an enforceable Code of Conduct. We treat harassing behavior very seriously and are committed to providing a safe, welcoming experience for everyone. We continuously train ourselves in response mechanisms.
The number of passes we’re able to give out relies heavily on the amount of sponsors. If your organization can help or you’re an individual willing to donate talk to us to get involved.
We’re grateful for the generous support our sponsors and community for making the Opportunity Program possible.
