A group of community members have engaged with Eclipse Foundation leadership and others with the vision of promoting and enhancing diversity. The Foundation has been working to support these activities, and to make diversity a priority for the Eclipse ecosystem.
A few initiatives have already been implemented, including:
- Promotion of diversity at conferences – increasing # of speakers, participation in program committee, keynote speakers
- Holding BoFs on diversity at our conferences
- Organizing “meet and greet” sessions at our events to welcome people from diverse communities
Diversity is an ongoing effort that involves and impacts everyone in the community. The discussion is happening on the ‘Diversity’ channel on Mattermost- all are welcome!
