Diversity Reboot (Summits and Virtual Job Fair) Honorarium Policy - EFFECTIVE JANUARY 2022 (Revised MARCH 2023)
Chat & Learn Honorarium Policy - EFFECTIVE JULY 2022 (Revised MARCH 2023)
PowerToFly’s Diversity Reboot Summits, Virtual Job Fairs, and Chat & Learns are free for all attendees. In alignment with our mission, it’s important our non-Partner speakers are compensated for the time and energy spent extending their expertise to PowerToFly. Speakers, not bound by alternative Partnership Agreements, have the option to receive a $250 honorarium for successful participation in our virtual events should the event be shared by the participating speaker/speakers’ organization. Sharing includes, but is not limited to: promotion on social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, TikTok, etc.), inclusion in a newsletter, message in a public group/ community, or similar marketing effort. Proof of promotion is required to receive the honorarium.
Speakers with alternate Partnership Agreements (which can include but are not limited to quid-pro-quo speaking, pay-per registrant partnerships, list sharing, sponsors/clients, etc.) may not be eligible for this honorarium but could be eligible for other compensation based on the initial agreement. Please refer to your Partnership Agreement and/or reach out to your point of contact for additional clarity.
Speakers participating in PowerToFly's Chat & Learn program will receive an honorarium of $250 once per year regardless of the number of talks they participate in but will be eligible for additional compensation including access to the registration list and a pay-per registrant incentive, depending on conversations with the PowerToFly team. Non-Partner speakers at PowerToFly's summits will be eligible for the $250 honorarium for each summit talk as well as pay-per registrant incentive but will not be able to receive access to the registrant list unless a separate agreement has been reached with PowerToFly. Compensation specifics can be discussed with your contact at PowerToFly and all compensation is subject to change based on specific conversations with the PowerToFly team and are subject to pre-existing Partnership Agreements that may alter the above.
We acknowledge that not everyone will want or have the ability to receive an honorarium, therefore speakers will have the option to donate their honorarium to that month’s charity/organization (pre-determined by PowerToFly), or to refuse the honorarium altogether.
Payments will be sent out by the close of the first week in the month following your speaking engagement.
Please note that PowerToFly does not allow for pre-recorded talks unless specific arrangements are made with the PowerToFly team via email@example.comfirstname.lastname@example.org in advance and confirmed with written communication from a PowerToFly team member.
Speakers acknowledge that each talk will be recorded and that recording is the property of PowerToFly. Speakers grant PowerToFly permission to use their likeness, image, voice, and/or appearance as such may be embodied in any photos, video recordings and the like. Speakers agree that PowerToFly can use said material for any purpose consistent with PowerToFly’s mission(s). These uses include, but are not limited to, videos, publications, advertisements, news releases, websites, and any promotional or educational materials. The recording of each talk will be available and accessed for free on PowerToFly’s website in perpetuity. PowerToFly will provide speakers a link to their recording once it is posted on the PowerToFly website which Speakers are encouraged to share with their community. Speakers will not receive additional compensation if their talk is rewatched, rebroadcast, included in a future summit, shared on social media or in a newsletter, etc. Raw files of recordings cannot be supplied to speakers unless by specific arrangement with PowerToFly.
Payments will be issued via a third-party system so PowerToFly only needs the speaker’s email address to complete the payment (no further banking information is required). Please note that this policy will not be applicable to speakers from Summit, Virtual Job Fair, or Chat & Learn sponsors or official partners (with a signed Partnership Agreement) and other exceptions may apply that are subject to privileged and confidential conversations with the PowerToFly team.
In order to receive the payment, speakers must adhere to the following:
