Uncharted: The Berkeley Ideas Festival

Diversity at Uncharted

by Lance Knobel

A number of people have written to us to ask: why aren’t there people of color and more women among the Uncharted speakers? Our response: judge us on the speaker lineup in October, not on the early list of speakers.

We’re completely committed to a diverse set of speakers for Uncharted: diverse in race, gender and ideology. We’re talking to lots of great people, twisting arms to join us in October. As we get new confirmations, we’ll update our speaker page and get the news out in as many ways as we can.

In the meantime we’re eager to hear your thoughts and suggestions for speakers. Who has inspired you recently? Who would you like to see in conversation at Uncharted?
