Inclusive Speaker Orientation Online Course

Please read and abide by our code of conduct, which can be found here.

The Linux Foundation, in collaboration with the National Center for Women in Technology (NCWIT), has created an online course designed to teach the viewer about inclusion, diversity and unconscious bias. It is a requirement that all of our speakers watch the course to learn tips/tools to use when speaking to encourage inclusivity in presentations and messaging.

Click here for the course. Upon completion of the course, you will receive a special-edition Linux Foundation jacket. You will be emailed details within 2 weeks of taking the course to place your jacket order.
