QueerTech is proud to announce our first ever conference, the QT Qonference! We are excited to be bringing our QTs together for a two-day multi-sensory, interactive, and immersive experience. We are inviting you to join us on a journey of professional SELF-DISCOVERY, where we will welcome you and encourage you to push beyond your current professional hurdles and embrace your full QT power.
We hope you can join us, get lost in the experience, and find yourself along the way!
Through facilitated workshops, inspirational conversations, and expert led panels, we will provide 3 guided experiences aligning with our audience over the 2-days.
Our goal is to host a fully seamless and hybrid experience with the physical experience happening in Toronto and our virtual experience powered by Brella.
