Education and collaboration are vital to the future of the open source 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, disability, race, ethnicity, age, religion or economic status. Our code of conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our community, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.
Our participant diversity breakdown in 2021 was:
- 37% of Keynote Speakers were women
- 21% Keynote Speakers were people of color
- 30% of all Conference Speakers identified as women or non-binary
- An estimated 31% of all Conference Speakers were people of color.
- 23%* of attendees identified as women and non-binary.
- 15%* of registered attendees identified as a person of color.
*These are optional questions on our registration form that also include ‘prefer not to answer’ as an option, or can be skipped entirely, thus these numbers may be higher than reflected here.
Diversity is a high priority for us and we will continue to work to increase these numbers. While increasing attendee gender diversity and the diversity of other underrepresented groups continues to be a challenge, we provide multiple opportunities for increased diversity and inclusion.
