Are there any scholarships or volunteer opportunities?
Alas, there are not! However, a number of our attendees have gotten their employer to pay by pitching the boss on how the conference will make them better employees. Also, many companies already have funds set aside for employees' professional development, or from women's programs. You can't know until you ask!
Each year we also offer discount opportunities for bringing a group from a company, college, etc., or just bringing along a friend who's new to the conference.
As for volunteer opportunities, we do not have general volunteer slots, although we do consider pitches from those with specific skills to offer (photography, decorating, local guide, etc.)
If you're a fancy gentleperson who would like to provide a scholarship for someone who would otherwise be unable to attend, please get in touch!
