Button Equity Scholarship

The Button community is purposefully designed to be inclusive of people whose experiences are often marginalized due to systemic oppression and exclusion. We created the Button Equity Scholarship awards to help increase the diversity of voices and perspectives at our events, as well as to help remove the barriers that make conference attendance difficult for many people.
