The inaugural GDC Advocacy Microtalks are here! It's a tried-and-true format: each speaker gets only 20 slides, every one of which is displayed for exactly 16 seconds, giving each speaker exactly five minutes and 20 seconds to share their radical new ideas. From thoughtful and fresh perspectives on design, to working with marginalized groups, to sharing practical steps for doing more inclusive work, the microtalks bring the best of the advocacy track with talks which pack a short-but-powerful punch.
