3:30-4:15PM SO YOU WANT TO BE A NERD ORGANIZER (ROOM 14)
Whether you’re starting a podcast, a meet-up group, an online community, a con, a magazine, or a social movement, being a nerdy organizer of any kind means figuring out a lot of logistics. How do you choose who to work with? Where do you get started? How do you implement rules? How do you choose guests? On this panel, nerd con runners, community organizers, editors, and producers will share their experiences and advice about what’s worked, and what hasn’t.
Panelists include Megan Byrd (Graham Cracker Comics Ladies Night), Sondra de Jong (Nebula Awards Chicago, Capricon), Tanya DePass (I Need Diverse Games), Thomas Glen (ValorCon), Matthew Peters (Mighty Ink Comics), andMichi Trota (Uncanny Magazine)

1:00-1:45PM THE MOST RACIST PANEL (ROOM 14)
Got your attention now?! So much has changed in our pop culture world- however, there are still many obstacles when it comes to experiencing ethnic or other marginalized heroes in media. Join us for this challenging topic as multicultural nerds discuss the cultural barriers, systemic problems, and the artistic gaps, that keep us from seeing diverse representation in comics, TV, and film.
