Mini Summits are an opportunity to network with and learn from peers in your field who share the same interests, issues, and challenges. 

In lieu of the traditional full-day summits, DrupalCon Global will feature mini summits focused on highlights and innovations and will be integrated into the main conference program. Your ticket includes the opportunity to include as many of the mini-summits as your schedule allows.

  • Featured sessions: Building a flexible digital brand: Activist and organizer, Leslie Mac shares the story of Black Womxn For, an online and offline project created to be a container for the political work of black women and gender-nonconforming people in the 2020 Democratic Primary. Leslie will share how the leadership team of national thought leaders came together to create a digital brand solid enough for people to resonate with, but flexible enough to adjust to something as volatile as an election cycle.
  • Drupal as a digital asset management system: See how the complex needs of galleries, libraries, archives, and museums are addressed in a digital asset platform now known as Islandora. 

  • Inclusive content strategy: As content authors, this is to help ensure our readers feel that we're speaking with them, not at them. We’ll look beyond the semantic markup and structured content to see the strategic value of inclusive, well-written content.
