Inclusion is only possible if everyone joins the conversation

Ctrl Alt Del aims to ignite conversations about what inclusion and accessibility looks like and how everyone from students to product owners and start-up founders to big tech companies can do their part. To ensure we have a mix of voices in the room we have 100 FREE tickets for students, non-profits, community groups, and small startup founders. These are first come first serve. If you aren't sure if you qualify please get in touch. If you need any additional accessibility support in joining us, do let us know!
