Announcing the Inaugural SharePoint Conference North America 2018 Diversity & Inclusion Program Co-sponsored by Microsoft.  

If you are heading to Las Vegas, May 21-23, 2018 for SharePoint Conference NA 2018, mark your calendar for our Diversity & Inclusion Programming all week at the event. 

The D&I track starts Monday morning just after the Microsoft keynote with 12 sessions and 3 panels on a variety of topics by Microsoft Employees, Microsoft MVPs and Community Members.  

The Diversity and Inclusion Track at SharePoint Conference NA will showcase discussions around the following topics:  building an inclusive workplace, myths about female business ownership, striking out fear and toxicity in the workplace, empowering female leadership, overcoming gender imbalance in the technical field; and panels on building a diverse team, motherhood, and an Ask Me Anything panel to close the program. These sessions and panels look to reflect topical issues of people of different backgrounds, experiences, perspectives as well as gender, race, religion, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. This track hopes to provide a dialogue where openness and transparency demonstrate that cognitively diverse and inclusive teams are better for business and our world. 

Speakers and panelists:  Sharon Chang, Maithili Dandige, Cathy Dew, Stephanie Donahue, Karuana Gatimu, Lori Gowin, Susan Hanley, Dan Holme, Jennifer Mason, Naomi Moneypenny, Eric Overfield, Heather Newman, Billie Schwartz, Eric Shupps, Vidya Srinivasan, Liz Sundet, Erica Toelle and more.

The Diversity and Inclusion room is open during breaks for ad-hoc meetings and networking. There will be an IAMCP WIT booth in the D&I room all week to learn more about the IAMCP organization.
