What to Know Before you Register

Submitting your registration and payment does not confirm your participation. We will confirm your participation based on our cohort curation goals of having at least 50% of cohort members from marginalized communities. We will individually follow up with you to confirm your participation or provide a full refund. Thank you for your interest!
