We’ll have a birds of a feather session to discuss and brainstorm diversity and inclusion in the Julia community. All are welcome!
JuliaCon 2018 was the most diverse JuliaCon yet. Though the success of this event demonstrated progress in the diversity and inclusivity of our community, the continued underrepresentation of individuals identifying as female or as racial/ethnic minorities, for example, indicates that we have a long way to go. As greater language stability increases the confidence of our community members to recruit new users and to invest further in the language and its community, interest in diversity efforts tied to the language seem to be gaining momentum. We would like to hold a birds of a feather session to discuss and brainstorm diversity and inclusion in the Julia community.
