Paris, France

10:00am to 5:00pm

AlterConf was a traveling conference series that provided safe opportunities for marginalized people and those who support them in the tech and gaming industries. By highlighting the powerful voices and positive initiatives of local community members, we built hope and strengthened the community’s resolve to create safer spaces for everyone.

The conferences went beyond the limited definitions and basic discussions of diversity to create a deeper, more nuanced conversation. Each conference featured a wide range of speakers delivering critical analyses of tech and gaming culture and presented their vision for what our community can be.
