Planning and supporting Personal Democracy Forum truly takes a community. Today, we are pleased to thank our first round of sponsors, invite facilitators to apply to help in our workshop, and announce the applications for our PDF International Fellowship.

We are happy to announce our initial group of sponsors: Microsoft, Facebook, Harvard’s Shorenstein Center, and NYU ITP. If your organization is interested in sponsorship, please email [email protected]
Call for Facilitators:
Our new format features keynote speakers with related workshops in the afternoon. In order to make these workshops more engaging than run-of-the-mill panels, we are putting out a call for keynote workshop facilitators. As a keynote workshop facilitator, you would be responsible for helping to structure the goals, process, and execution of the workshop. In return, you would receive a free ticket to PDF, compensation, and your bio listed in our program. Apply here by April 18th!
PDF International Fellowship:
The community around PDF reaches far beyond the Eastern seaboard of the United States. However, we understand flights from certain parts of the world may inhibit many from participating in person. We are pleased to announce the PDF International Fellowship for 10 civic tech enthusiasts who live in countries outside of the United States who want to come to PDF. If you are someone who is devoted to the use of tech for the public good, this could be for you. Especially if you’ve never been to PDF before. Fellowships include a round-trip economy fare ticket and 2 nights hotel, plus a conference attendee pass, thanks to the generous support of Facebook. Apply here by April 18th!
We are still taking pitches for 5-minute talks, keynote + workshops, and PDFopen. Make sure you put them in our form here.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Andrew, Micah & Danielle
