If you’ve been there, you know the Jamf Nation User Conference (JNUC) is special. If you haven’t, you’ve likely heard about it. It’s the culmination of passion, community and really smart people. Knowledgeable Jamf admins and Jamfs alike present on a variety of topics to help you all, our community, thrive in your roles. But we can do more. We can be better. That’s why for the fifth year in a row, we’re excited to offer the JNUC Diversity Sponsorship program to JNUC attendees.
In an effort to have a more diverse and inclusive conversation at this year’s event, we expanded our program to offer sponsorships to 15 individuals from underrepresented groups within the technology sector. We want to hear your unique perspectives and understand how we can help the tech sector be a better space for everyone to work.
The sponsorships include:
- Ticket to JNUC
- Exclusive meet-and-greet with Jamf senior leaders
- $500 stipend to use toward travel and hotel costs
- Social outing with other sponsorship recipients
- And fun…lots and lots of fun.
“Being invited to participate in the Jamf Diversity Sponsorship for JNUC was unquestionably a once-in-a-lifetime experience. As a professional who consistently feels underrepresented in their field, it was incredible to be able to meet so many other diverse individuals who shared my passion for technology, and specifically for Jamf! The people I met and relationships I formed have impacted my professional career in so many positive ways! I look forward to reconvening with the new group of diversity scholars each and every year!”
Taylor Bell, Maryville University
“I was lucky enough to be accepted for a diversity scholarship for JNUC in 2019. I felt honored to be selected along with the other recipients. There were fantastic opportunities for us to bond as a group, which felt like having long-time friends at a conference. It also has been invaluable since JNUC. We’ve all been there for each other for support and growth. I learned so much at JNUC. I grew my network of Mac admins — my toolbox is now overflowing! For anyone who has a desire to go to JNUC, yet their organization doesn’t have the budget to send them, apply for it. If you get it, you will not regret it!”
Sam Herren, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
We’d love for you to join us at this year’s JNUC from September 29 to October 1 in San Diego, CA. If you are from an underrepresented group in the tech field, apply for the JNUC Diversity Sponsorship by 5:00 p.m. CST on Monday, June 1. Past recipients are not eligible to apply.
A committee of Jamfs are excited to read and rate your applications! After going through two rounds of ratings, those with the top 15 scores will receive the sponsorship. Good luck! Sponsorship recipients, along with this who weren’t accepted, will receive a notification by July 17. Visit jamf.com/jnuc for more information about this year’s event.
