At the moment, Workshop/Bronze is our main event. Please contact our coordinators if one of the following cases fits your interests or if you have any questions or comments.

  • If you would like to host a Workshop/Bronze for a women-exclusive, gender-balanced, women-first, or an underrepresented group.
