Have allergies/restrictions? Tell us when you register.

What about travel and lodging?
If you’re coming from out of town (yay!) and you’re looking for a hotel, we’ve negotiated a special block of rooms with a discount at The Freehand in Flatiron (very central). Approx $215/night + taxes.

Have a room / sofa / futon to host someone? Tell us when you register.
Need assistance finding a place to stay? Tell us when you register.
Want access to our Freehand discount? Tell us when you register.
Need to fly in but concerned about paying for airfare? Tell us when you register.

What are we going to talk about?
A full agenda will be released shortly, but you can expect:
1) Out in Tech 101 — mission, vision, values, structure, impact
2) Diversity, inclusion, and belonging — what you can do
3) Planning for scale, and scaling our plans (growth!)
4) Meet the Out in Tech global volunteer force. Lots of networking time!

What if I can only attend one day or another?
*Crickets* Um. Well. Just tell us when you register. We won’t shade you too hard.
(Okay, no shade, but you’ll forever be on the outside of our inside jokes).

Deadline to register?
ASAP (we need to know how many mouths to feed and chairs to unfold)!
But the reaaaaal deadline is Friday, February 15.

Other questions?
Alexa, Siri, and Cortana are all on furlough for the gov’t shutdown!
