Behaviour Change Platform for D&I

Announcing the Crescendo x Evoke Conference Initiative

Crescendo is excited to support Evoke and help bring Toronto's dev community together by giving away two free tickets! Evoke, a non-profit initiative, presented by Havas Canada & Plastic Mobile, and sponsored by Microsoft is bringing the entire developer community together in Toronto for one of the largest developer conferences and events in Canada.


We wanted to help promote this conference because it's extremely important to us that these tech conferences are 1. more representative of the Toronto community and 2. inclusive spaces.

As part of the partnership, we've also shared our guideline to hosting inclusive events as a resource to help ensure this space is welcoming of people from all backgrounds and life situations!
