Hi [YOUR MANAGER’S NAME],

I’m writing to ask whether [INSERT COMPANY] would approve covering the cost of my attendance at Out in Tech Talks on Saturday, May 2, 2020. The conference theme is diversity in tech and the power of tech to create social change. 

See outintech.com/talks for more info about the conference and a list of some confirmed speakers.

The event provides an opportunity for 600+ LGBTQ tech professionals to discuss diversity initiatives, and how an inclusive culture allows teams to be more productive, innovative and profitable. The panels will touch upon ways that LGBTQ+ employees can feel safe, supported and celebrated in the workplace; as well as practical steps to promote workplace diversity.

Once I’ve attended Out in Tech Talks, I’ll look forward to sharing my experiences with the team.

Tickets for Out in Tech Talks are available now and cost $149.99 (early bird pricing until March 3rd). The event is taking place at John Jay College in midtown Manhattan [optional: and I estimate travel and lodging expenses will cost $XX].

Thank you for taking the time to consider my request. I’m very grateful and happy to discuss further!
