0

Keynote Launches a new fund to support diversity and inclusion in the development and use of blockchain technology.

Keynote​ is thrilled to launch a new $6 million Fund to support diversity and inclusion in the blockchain industry. The fund exists to ensure everyone has the opportunity to play an active role in the development and evolution of blockchain; and that opportunities to work and develop in blockchain are open to all regardless of age, disability, gender identity or gender expression, race, ethnicity, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation or any other characteristic.

This year, Keynote are particularly encouraging applications to speak, volunteer and attend the World Blockchain Forum London from young people, women and people and people with disabilities as these groups are currently under-represented in the blockchain industry. These opportunities are aimed at those who will benefit most from this opportunity and who might not otherwise have the opportunity to develop their careers and knowledge within the industry. Applications to speak, volunteer or attend will be accepted on a rolling basis and will close on Friday 17th August 2018.

The $6 million Fund will be officially launched at this year’s World Blockchain Forum held in the heart of London at the Old Billingsgate. Tickets are available at: ​london.keynote.ae/tickets​ and a full list of confirmed speakers and the agenda can be found​ ​here​.

For expressions of interest, please contact Amandah Hendricks, Chief of Communications, at [email protected]​. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and will close on Friday 17th August 2018.

If you would like to be a part of facilitating global change via blockchain education through a ​partnership with us, please contact Amy Issersohn, Chief Strategy Officer, at [email protected]
