Events Community of Interest
The TECNA Events Community of Interest (CoI) is a peer-to-peer collaboration and information-sharing group. Over quarterly calls, TECNA members who support events gain new insights from an invited speaker. The second half of each call is designed for networking, sharing best practices and raising questions, so that we are best positioned to host top-notch events that provide member value and revenue for our tech councils/associations. This CoI is a "TECNA member only" group. For more information or to join, please contact email@example.com.

The last conference call of Events COI took place on March 14, 2018. CoI Events Chair Danielle Pinto, Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies, facilitated the call.
We discussed how to address tech's diversity problem; how to recognize our own unconscious bias and the systemic bias built into our local tech communities. We discussed concrete steps to take to have more diverse speaker lineups, attract and engage event attendees across different silos in our communities, etc.
