Invited Technical Speakers (Invited by committee) A distinguished Industry or an Academic man or woman speaking on a leading edge technical topic; a dynamic speaker. Talk should not be a commercial for their organization or any other personal agenda. We can have “one Invited Speaker” for your track. This will be a joint AnitaB.org and co-chair decision since Invited Speakers are funded by the conference. We recommend you have a Top 3 list.
Factors to consider: Popularity (Will attendees know who they are), Stage Presence (YouTube videos of prior speeches, talks), Topic (Will the topic complement the track)
*Note 1: Last year our Invited Speakers roaster included a winner of the MacArthur Award, winner of an Academy Award (Oscar) & Golden Globe.
