About the Better Together Diversity Social

The Better Together Diversity Social offers the opportunity for all underrepresented minorities (including race, gender, sexual orientation and disability) in attendance at OSS to join together to build connections to carry through the event and beyond. Our hope is that this event will help to continue to increase the diversity both at the event as well as in the open source community as time goes on.

Who Can Attend?

This event welcomes our attendees that are underrepresented minorities in tech; women, people of color, LGBTQA+, and people with disabilities. Please join us to connect and share experiences.

Is this Event Open to Allies?

No. Allies are incredibly important to further diversity in tech and the world, however, at this time, we’ve chosen to limit attendance to underrepresented minorities in tech, to provide this community a dedicated space to share their unique experiences and perspectives.

We encourage allies to support diversity in tech while at OSS by participating in the Diversity Empowerment Summit, and by seeking out and engaging with diverse attendees onsite.

Speakers, media and select sponsors will gather for drinks, hors d’oeuvres and networking at the Open Source Summit Partner Reception. Located at The Prado at Balboa Park, invited guests will have the opportunity to continue the conversation and enjoy delicious, locally sourced food and drinks.

The Prado at Balboa Park is a National Historic Landmark which was originally built for the 1915-1916 Panama-California Exposition. This two year festival was held in Balboa Park to promote San Diego and to celebrate the 1914 opening of the Panama Canal. Attendees will enjoy the original Spanish, Moorish and Mexican architectural design seen in over two dozen, original, hand-painted, wooden stencil designs on doors as well as the intricate hand stenciled ceilings and beams.

Attendee Reception

Thursday, August 22 | 6:30 – 9:30 pm
Location: USS Midway Museum

It’s time to get onboard for Open Source Summit’s Attendee Reception! The reception will take place at the USS Midway Museum, an iconic landmark in San Diego. At the USS Midway Museum, you can join your fellow attendees for a night filled with great food and drinks, networking, and entertainment!

Aboard the USS Midway, you can walk up and touch the fighter jets, bombers, and helicopters that took naval aviation into the jet age. Take a behind the scenes tour led by Veterans to learn first-hand what it takes to take-off and land on an aircraft carrier, and what life aboard was like. Throughout the night there will be entertainment and maybe some special guest appearances…this is one you don’t want to miss!
