Men, you can have 4% of our 900 seats. 

Dudes, we love you, but due to the fact that our past conferences have completely sold out we don’t think it’s fair to give you a seat when there could be a woman waiting for hers. To keep things fair we are going to sell 4% of our 900 seats to men. Why 4%? That’s the number of women who are CEOs of Fortune 500 companies. So, there are 36 seats reserved for the guys.

We know you can respect our decision to limit your seats in order to bring attention to this starting statistic. This is the only Women in Digital event we open to men. To find out why, listen to this podcast.

Note: tickets are always available to any person who identifies as female.
