Outreach

You are responsible for outreach for the event, but AnitaB.org will provide tools and resources to help you. Make sure your read and follow the AnitaB.org Branding Guidelines (coming soon) which will guide you on  event branding, PR, how to use social media, etc.

  • Discuss an outreach strategy with your program committee:
    • Will your event be public or by invitation only?

    • What’s the deadline to sign up?
    • Is it free or nominal fee? Do you offer scholarships or passes to those who can’t afford to pay?
