The Button Equity Scholarship exists to increase the diversity of voices and perspectives at our events and in the field at large. Join the Button mailing list to hear when applications open for 2023 scholarships.
Conferences don’t just reflect the communities they represent. They actively shape them.
Brain Traffic founded the Button Equity Scholarship program to help build a more diverse, inclusive community far beyond our four days together each year. These scholarships allow us to expand the Button audience to include people whose experiences are marginalized due to systemic oppression and exclusion.
