WiA - Launching New Voices at Business Agility Conference 2020

event date

10 Mar 2020


Convene at 117 West 46th Street New York City, New York, United States

Are you interested in presenting a short talk during the Women In Agile Conference the evening of March 10, 2020 in New York City?! Please apply!

We are providing an opportunity for women in agile with limited speaking experience to work with a mentor and present a seven-minute talk at the end of the Women in Agile event on the afternoon of March 10, 2020 (event time is TBD but likely 6-9 pm), prior to the Business Agility conference. 

Some additional information for you to consider:

  • We will hold a kickoff with the three proteges and the three mentors around January 6, 2020. 
  • There is not yet a webpage for the Women in Agile event, it is coming soon. We are launching this Call for Speakers (CFS) earlier so the proteges have time to prep for their talk with their mentor. 
  • CFS will close 12/27/2019, so submit soon!
  • If you'd like to read about the experiences of previous proteges in the program, check out these blogs from Suzi, Frazanah, and Linda
