All Summit Europe and Atlas Camp speaker submissions will be reviewed and graded by a program committee comprised of Atlassian employees, Partners, and customers. Speaker details will be anonymous during preliminary selection to ensure we have an objective assessment of each submission. Selected speakers will be notified by mid May 2018.
Atlassian is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive event that showcases the contributions of people from all backgrounds in technology. Collecting demographic data about our applicant pool and speaker lineup is a key part of that mission. We will not use this information to inform our selection process, but rather to understand how effectively we are reaching and supporting speakers from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds at Atlassian Summit.
There are 25+ different people on the selection committee reviewing our all submissions. Our reviewers come from a wide variety of demographic backgrounds and possess a broad range of expertise. To ensure that we have the benefit of a diversity of thought when selecting the kind of content that will be presented at Atlassian Summit Europe 2018 and Atlas Camp 2018.
When speakers submit their proposed topic, reviewers won’t be able to see any identifying information about the presenter while the content is being evaluated. This will allow us to assess the true merit of the proposal without allowing someone’s demographic characteristics or speaking experience to bias our decisions. After determining the highest quality submissions from each track, our selection committee will meet to ensure that we have an appropriate balance of speakers. In addition to the diversity and experience level of our speaker line up, we also try to ensure a good mix of Atlassian employees and customers.
The last hurdle to overcome is a structural one. We know that because of implicit bias, people from underrepresented backgrounds may be less likely to have significant prior speaking experience compared to their majority-group counterparts.
We want to ensure that all of our speakers are comfortable and confident when speaking. To that end, we’ll be offering live speaker training to selected presenters who would find it valuable. We believe that this training will pay a wide variety of dividends: it will ensure that we have a high-quality set of talks and increase the confidence of all our speakers.
