About Resource Persons
 Welcome to the United Nations | Department of Economic and Social Affairs

What is a resource person?

Resource persons are experts in the field of Internet Governance who volunteer to join the IGF meeting as support persons or speakers for workshops and other sessions. Since every session should achieve a balance of speakers in terms of stakeholder group, gender and geographic affiliation, resource persons can be called upon by organizers to help them fulfill the said criteria.

Resource persons can also be invited to join a session if a scheduled speaker withdraws.

Organizers may access the list of resource persons in the workshop proposal form and on the IGF’s website. Those who wish to register as resource persons should sign up here.
