Identify

Below are the standard fields collected for event RSVPs and volunteer applications. If you’re creating a registration flow for an event or a survey, please be sure you break those questions down into these 4 categories and add a “write-in option” for each category (not “other,” which in and of itself, can be othering to folx). It is important to explain why this information is being collected.

For example: How do you identify? We care about diversity, and want to take into account the multiple ways in which Out in Tech audiences might identify. This helps us improve our programming and our inclusion efforts.
