Welcome to the Speakers Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Section!

This page is intended for only the current speakers presenting at The Diana Initiative Conference 2023.

Below you will find important information about:

  • Your free speaker ticket
  • Your free tshirt / swag
  • Our scheduling software, sched
  • Our chat platform, Discord
  • Mentor Pairing information

Speaker Ticket – You should have received your Speaker ticket through eventbrite email. You should have received a code for your +1

SWAG code – We have emailed all speakers a one time swag code to redeem for a t-shirt from our [ swag store ]. Go to the third tab to redeem the special speaker color! Please be aware swag will most likely arrive after your return home from Las Vegas. If you did not get this email please contact us. Unlike gift cards we only pay for the amount of money which is redeemed from the vouchers, so if you decide you’d rather Diana Initiative keeps the money and/or you don’t want swag, thank you.

If you are a government employee, press, or another person who can not accept gifts (as this is greater than a 20$ value with taxes and shipping) please don’t utilize your code (we won’t be charged for codes that are not redeemed).

Our Schedule – If you have a hard conflict with your time please reply to that email and we’ll work to swap you to another spot.

Sched Invitation – You will be receiving an email invitation from sched – this is the tool we are using to publish our schedule. It allows you to upload your speaker graphic, update your bio, and if needed tweak your talk abstract. We just wanted to give you the opportunity to update your profile and session as soon as we could. So this year to make any changes to your speaker profile or talk, you do not need to email or DM anyone. Just login onto sched and make changes yourself. If you cannot find your sched invite or do not remember your password, you can reset your sched password

Discord Invitation – If you haven’t already, please join our slack as this is where we will be actively communicating.

If you already are on our discord or once you join discord, please DM (@Jaime Borchert ) to be added to the speakers channel.
