*** NO REPRODUCTION FEE *** 21/6/2018 : Inspirefest (21st & 22nd June) is Europe’s leading conference of technology, science and the arts. It is unique and different from traditional tech events in that it has diversity and inclusion at its core. Taking place in the vibrant surroundings of Dublin’s digital docklands and with 50 keynote speakers from 20 countries, the attendance of 3,000 delegates (over 2 days) is approximately 65% female. Inspirefest aims to celebrate and challenge our perspectives and norms relating to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) and the arts. The themes for this year’s event vary from Environmental and Marine Science to Space Exploration, tackling the biases in Artificial Intelligence and the Talent Dividend that can be created by companies embracing those with difference from Autism to Blindness and beyond. www.inspirefest.com Picture Conor McCabe Photography.
