The objective of the Revolve Conference Diversity Ticket Program is to facilitate attendance at the conference by candidates from under-represented groups in the creative and marketing industry. These tickets are primarily for (but not limited to) those within daily commute of the Charleston area.
The Lack of Diversity, and Under-Represented Groups in Tech
At most tech events, women and minorities are ‘in short supply’ 1. Revolve chooses to proactively tackle this state of affairs. For 2016, ‘under-represented’ groups include:
Women(Revolve Conference attendees comprise more than 50% women),
- People of color,
- Disabled people.
What Does an Awarded Diversity Ticket Include?
Each award is for one conference ticket, which includes:
- admission to this year’s Revolve Conference,
- catering for session days of the conference (October 27 & 28, 2016),
- and admission to the parties organized for the conference attendees, speakers, partners and staff.
The Sanctity of Applicant Information
Applicant details and submission information will be shared exclusively with Revolve Conference organizers, and members of the panel vetting applications. Diversity Ticket Sponsors will not have access to applicant information.
How Are Winners Determined?
A limited number of tickets will be made available. Each application will be thoroughly vetted to ensure it satisfies all program requirements before being added to a pool. Diversity tickets will then be awarded via a lottery system. One submission per applicant is sufficient to maintain eligibility for each award.
