We are pleased to announce Hacking Diversity, a four-day event to support and encourage the information security and hacking community to hack the world around us in positive meaningful ways. Hacking Diversity is August 9th - 11th, 2018 (concurrent with DefCon) in the Caesars Palace Tower, a quick elevator ride up from the conference floor.
Hacking Diversity is an independent event - you do NOT need a DefCon badge to come, and all are welcome. Hacking Diversity is run by Technology Diversified, a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to increasing allyship, diversity, and inclusion in technology.
Hacking Diversity features:
- Presentations on Allyship, diversity, and workplace issues
- Presentations featuring our partners, sponsors, and companies that promote the values of diversity and inclusion
- Networking Socials to help people find work and connect with others who support diversity and inclusion
- Quiet parties from 8-midnight on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. We're introvert friendly and are keeping it alcohol-free and family-friendly.
