<h2>Reflecting the Bay in the North Bay Python 2017 speaker lineup</h2>
 

	
 
<p><span class="date">Wednesday, August 30, 2017</span>&mdash;The organizing team wants North Bay Python to reflect the demographics of the world around us, including the speaker lineup. We are working to make that happen, and we could use your help.</p>
 

	
 
<p>We are <a href="https://2017.northbaypython.org/program/call-for-proposals">currently seeking talk proposals</a> for our inaugural conference in Petaluma, CA on December 2-3, 2017. The deadline to submit a proposal is September 29, 2017.</p>
 

	
 
<p>This is an opportunity for new and seasoned speakers alike, for students and professionals, for developers and researchers, for managers and hobbyists.</p>
 

	
 
<p>To aid those who are interested in speaking, we are happy to share ideas, help refine proposals, and provide mentorship to prospective speakers.</p>
 

	
 
<p>We're providing that support via email to <a href="mailto:program@northbaypython.org">program@northbaypython.org</a> and <a href="https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=%23nbpy">chat</a>, as needed and during the twice weekly office hours we host on Wednesdays at 3pm and Fridays at 7pm Pacific. People can tweet at us for help, too.</p>
 

	
 
<p>In order to decrease bias when selecting talks, our <a href="https://2017.northbaypython.org/program/selection-process">proposal scoring process</a> anonymizes speaker details. Accepted speakers receive a free pre-event training. We offer financial aid for speakers on a case-by-case basis.</p>
 

	
 
<p>We are doing all we can to build a great program and help excellent people get on stage.</p>
 

	
 
<p>You can help, too:</p>
 

	
 
<ul>
 
  <li><strong>Take the stage!</strong> You should <a href="https://2017.northbaypython.org/program/call-for-proposals">submit a proposal</a>. Yes, you.</li>
 
  <li><strong>Amplify someone else's voice.</strong> Encourage someone who's never given a conference talk to submit a proposal.</li>
 
  <li><strong>Help submitters prepare their proposals and talks:</strong> proofread, act as a rehearsal audience, offer slide design tips...</li>
 
  <li><strong>Pay our bills.</strong> Recommend <a href="https://2017.northbaypython.org/sponsors/become-a-sponsor">a sponsor</a> or throw your support behind this not-for-profit volunteer-run event as <a href="https://2017.northbaypython.org/about/donate">an individual donor</a>.</li>
 
</ul>
