The intimate nature of a small event like this left me feeling like I have a new support network I can bounce ideas off and ask for advice.”

DPM Role Calls: A New Attendee Benefit

How cool would it be to come to the conference and already have a sense for who will be there? Better yet, wouldn’t it be great to start talking about some of the agenda topics, or even the challenges you’re facing NOW? Sounds like a good idea to us, so we’re going to be doing monthly Role Calls for DPM 2019 attendees only. 

Register for the summit and get an invite to join us for our upcoming Role Calls on June 7, July 12, August 16 and September 13.


Get Ready for DPM 2019

Make that three days if you sign up for the optional workshops! Save with our hotel group rate through 5:00 PM ET on Friday, September 27.


Earn PDUs and Have Fun!

If you've got your PMP or are working toward it, attending will help you earn Professional Development Units (PDUs). While we’re not associated with the Project Management Institute (PMI), we do know that this event will earn you PDUs for every hour you're in a Digital PM Summit session. Just submit your ticket receipt along with the number of hours you spent in sessions to PMI. Several attendees have successfully done this in the past.


Love from the Community

Curious what you’ll find at the 2019 Digital PM Summit? Check out last year’s recap and hear what a few DPM2018 alums have to say:

“The DPM summit is the highlight of the year for project managers in the tech space. Every year I meet fascinating people and learn as much from the other attendees as from the speakers.”

— Mika Trottier, Partner Acceleration Lead, Shopify

“I have never been to a conference where I felt more of a sense of companionship and community…Having the opportunity to network, collaborate, share war stories and take ideas home that come from people in similar situations is amazing! I hope I have the opportunity to come every year, and if not, at least send my co-workers so I can still benefit from it one way or another.”

— Matt McGuire, Client Services Manager, Leepfrog Technologies

“DPM Summit was a one-of-a-kind, nitty-gritty conference. It was so refreshing to attend a conference where industry peers are open, honest and willing to help someone out and share real tips for how to improve. I'm taking back a ton of lessons for my team that can be used ASAP!”

— Kindra Svendsen, Director of Digital Marketing Services, Speak Creative

“I was a first-time attendee at DPM 2018 and was blown away by the incredible community of peers and mentors who were all so willing to share their challenges and advice for success. The impact coming out of the Summit is immeasurable. If you've never been, go! And if you have, I'm sure I'll see you again soon!”

— Gavin Wright, Project Manager, CO+LAB Digital

Digital Diversity Days at Sparkbox

Digital Diversity Days at Sparkbox

Create Healthy Environments for Diverse Teams, Products & Solutions

A simple truth: we need more diversity in the tech industry. Diversity of gender, ethnicities, beliefs, experiences—all of it. While many of us understand the benefits of having diverse teams in our companies, cultures and communities, we struggle with creating a focused and sustainable initiative. That’s the mission of Digital Diversity Days at Sparkbox, connecting diversity, equity and inclusion professionals with digital companies of all kinds that need guidance on making real strides in creating healthy environments for diverse teams.

THE DETAILS

November 13–14, 2019
Sparkbox
123 Webster St.
Dayton, OH 45402 (map)

Diversity is not easy. But together we can lay the foundation to make real change happen within our companies, our community and our industry. Trying to get started is what stops many of us. It feels like there are too many things we don’t understand. Luckily we don’t have to do it alone. Join us to learn from experts, openly discuss your challenges and outline a real diversity plan for your organization. Together we can do this.


Why You Need to Be There

digital-pm-summit.jpg

Meaningful Connections

Digital Diversity Days gives you the opportunity to meet with peers in an open, supportive environment. Step outside your own organization to connect with others who share your same priorities and challenges.

wil-reynolds-seer.jpg

Dedicated Time in the Right Environment

Many of us have been discussing diversity for a long time. While the conversation is important, it’s only the beginning. Put a plan in place, recalibrate your talent pipeline and begin executing on your vision for the future.

digital-diversity-days.jpg

Real Insights, Real Accountability

We all know DE&I is the future, but it can be tough to know how to get started. Learn first-hand how others have found success and plug into a peer group that will ensure you reach your goals.

Actionable Takeaways

Digital Diversity Days is all about putting in real work to achieve lasting change. This isn’t an educational event. It’s a change-your-organization event.
