Our work with various conferences around the world provides an incredible opportunity to engage a diverse group of agile leaders, conference participants, and new allies in a concentrated, high-energy environment. While we recognize that each event is the result of a team of engaged volunteers, we especially want to recognize those individuals who step up to lead and coordinate one or more Women in Agile event and work on addressing the systemic impediments that hinder conferences from reaching their full diversity and inclusivity potential.
