New $6 Million Diversity and Inclusion Fund for the Global Blockchain Industry
Keynote, a global blockchain consultancy, is launching a new $6 million fund to promote inclusion and diversity in the blockchain space, from development to use of blockchain technology. Click through to read more about the fund, as well as the World Blockchain Forum, Sept. 3 to 5 in London.
Keynot 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 foun here.
