Our panellists include:

We also will have a full length talk on "Why We Should Advocate Ourselves More" by Bernadeth Lucanas from Google!

Bernadeth is part of Google Cloud and is a Diversity & Inclusion Advocate and #IamRemarkable Ambassador.

This will be an inclusive event of all genders. We will hold back some RSVP spots for women to ensure there is as much opportunity as possible for everyone to get involved. If you miss out on a spot please send a message. Waitlist policy from our regular GDG Melbourne Meetups will also apply.
