Pitch a Session

Feedback+New York: The Case for Listening is a one-day event on October 11, 2019 that will build on 2016’s “Is Feedback Smart?” event and align the community around the latest theories and knowledge about a healthy feedback practice.

A unique element of Feedback+ Summits is the co-creation of the agenda from participants like yourself! Whether you’re about to publish a white paper or are the leader of an innovative NYC non-profit, we want to hear from you. Feedback+New York applications are due August 10, 2019.

Speakers who are selected to present at Feedback+New York will receive a ticket at a 50% discount.

This year, members of the feedback community sent a clear message: our community needs “a renewed focus on inclusivity, including voices from elsewhere and from more frontline staff.” In response, we’ve committed to making Feedback+New York an inclusive, equitable space.

Your support will help ensure that front-line staff from small organizations are able to participate fully in high-quality feedback trainings and conferences, and improve feedback practices around the world.

Last year, #FBLSummit attendees said it was time to break out of the DC bubble. We listened. Feedback+ is headed to NYC and San Juan, Puerto Rico, and maybe even your hometown. Pitch your city on the Feedback+ website! https://t.co/0TSOV4xrIp
