Education and collaboration are vital to the future of the CNCF ecosystem and it is imperative to us that everyone in the community that wants to participate feels welcome to do so regardless of gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, dis/ability, race, ethnicity, age, religion, or economic status.

To encourage and increase the participation of a diverse community, we are pleased to offer diversity and need-based registration scholarships, and discounts to our conferences.
