thanks Chris Messina I did not know about some of those lists so this is very helpful. The reason why I ask here too is who is recommending a speaker matters a lot to us (ie. you versus a random person isn’t the same recommendation) as we want to launch with high quality speakers.
Then we contact them one by one and seek their approval to join our platform. We have 200+ already confirmed. Which makes me think we should also invite you if we have not, even though you won’t help diversity :-) thanks Chris!
