Inclusivity and FITC

At FITC, we believe that including a diverse range of voices at our events makes them better, stronger, more inclusive, and more fun. Our current definition of diversity includes people of any gender, including identity and expression; sexual orientation; disabilities, mental or physical; physical appearance, including but not limited to body size; ethnicity/culture; personal expression; and beliefs – religious, political or otherwise. Having these voices on our stages, on our volunteer teams, and in our audiences allow us all to grow through hearing a variety of experiences, stories, and viewpoints.

What is the Shopify Diversity Scholarship Program?

The scholarship consists of up to 100 complimentary conference tickets to Spotlight UX, an online event on July 15, 2021.


  • We will be selecting the top 100 entries for a complimentary event ticket
  • Attendees must agree to follow our code of conduct
  • This program is aimed at those who are unable to secure a ticket through their company, or unable to afford a ticket themselves


  • Applications close on July 1, 2021


All personal information collected from applicants will only be reviewed by the staff of FITC, and will never be shared with anyone or made public. We are bound by/in compliance with the Canadian Privacy Act, and treat all personal information with the utmost respect and confidentiality. Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of judges with names and personal information removed.  Top submissions may be showcased online, or during the event, with personal information removed unless otherwise granted by the individual.  By applying for the scholarship you consent to the above, and to receive emails from FITC, including current and future event information and notifications.
