Sex::Tech Brings Together Leaders in New Media, Youth, and Sexual Health

By February 28, 2012

Follow me on:

March is around the corner which means so is Sex::Tech. For full disclosure I should say that I was so impressed by the first Sex::Tech conference held in 2008 that I became a volunteer board member of ISIS, the non-profit organization the following year, and I'm proud to be involved with the organization and to be attending for the fifth year in a row.

As a sex educator it's one of the few conferences that I go to every year and every year come away with half a dozen things I learned that I make use of right away in my work.

This year's line up is no exception. It starts on Saturday March 31st with a developer challenge (the "first ever hack-a-thon for youth health"). Then there are two days of workshops, plenaries, panels, and hanging out in the hallways with people whose jobs you didn't even know existed before you met them.

One of the best parts of the conference is the number of youth who attend. Having the people who are ostensibly being served in the room when service providers are talking can dramatically change the kinds of conversations that happen in those rooms and the way the conversations themselves happen.

They have limited space left, but if you're interested check out the site. They have discounted rates for youth and for adults who come with youth.
