Diversity & Inclusion

Education and collaboration are vital to the future of the Linux 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.

Registration Discounts/Scholarships

To encourage and increase the participation of a diverse community, we are pleased to offer diversity scholarships. The application deadline for the JS Interactive Diversity Scholarship has passed. Announcements will be sent by July 13.

ONSITE RESOURCES

Nursing Room
We will be providing a private nursing room at this year’s event to aid in the comfort and accessibility for our nursing attendees. The room will be available all days of the event and will be located onsite. For location information, please check with registration or information desk staff onsite.

Child Care
Complimentary childcare will be available onsite during event days. RSVP here. Note, no onsite signups are permitted.

Venue Accessibility
If you need any assistance locating an elevator, or have other questions about accessibility onsite, please speak to a member of the Linux Foundation event staff at any of the registration or information desks onsite. If you have questions prior to the event, please email events@linuxfoundation.org.

Communication Stickers
At Registration, attendees can pick up communication stickers to add to their badges. Communication stickers indicate an attendee’s requested level of interaction with both other attendees and press (including photographers and videographers).

  • Green = Open to communicate.
  • Yellow = Only if you know me, please.
  • Red = I’m not interested in communicating (or being videotaped or photographed) at this time.

Please be respectful of attendee communication preferences.

Pronoun Stickers
Pick up a pronoun sticker from registration to share your pronouns with other conference attendees. Please be respectful of attendees’ pronouns.

All-Gender Restrooms
We will designate specific restrooms as all-gender restrooms for attendees who feel more comfortable using those facilities.

First Aid/Medical Assistance
If you require first aid or medical assistance, please visit our registration desk or the venue front desk. For emergencies, please dial 911.

CONTACT INFORMATION / HARASSMENT REPORTS

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the event staff immediately. Event staff can be identified by staff badges onsite and can be found at the event registration counter at any time. Our staff has had incident response training and responds to harassments reports and does so in accordance with the process recommended on the Geek Feminism Wiki found here.

You may also reach out to the following individual(s):

Emily Ruf
Event Manager, The Linux Foundation

Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference.

If you are planning to attend an upcoming event, and have concerns regarding another individual who may be present, please contact Emily Ruf at Eruf@linuxfoundation.org. Precautions will be taken to ensure a victim’s comfort and safety, including, but not limited to providing an escort, prepping onsite event staff, keeping victim and harasser from attending the same talks/social events and providing onsite contact cell phone numbers for immediate contact.
