Tips for Voting

While you are going through sessions, there are a couple of things you should keep in mind:

  • Look for Diversity: The most interesting sessions are the ones that include many different perspectives. Be sure to look out for diversity in gender, ethnicity, location, employment, and opinion when reviewing sessions.
  • Get Familiar with 2023 Tracks & Formats: Knowing what each track & format consists of can be a helpful tool while voting. The track will help determine the thematic topic of the session and the format will help you visualize what the session will look like. This will give you a better overall understanding of the session and help you decide if it is right for SXSW EDU 2023.
