Workshop: A DEI (Diversity Equity and Inclusion) Framework for Community Tech


In the open source and nonprofit tech space, communities have emerged to help us help each other. How can we all contribute to building more inclusive communities? How can community groups tackle such multi-faceted, systemic issues? You’ll hear from four volunteer community group leaders on what they’ve done over the past 18 months. We’ll go over what’s worked and what hasn’t. After an overview of our journey, we’ll help you workshop the start of your own DEI journey. It’s a marathon, not a sprint!

  • Understand how to identify and implement steps to apply a DEI framework to your nonprofit tech group/meetup/community/organization
