About the Better Together Diversity Social

The Better Together Diversity Social offers the opportunity for all underrepresented minorities (including race, gender, sexual orientation and disability) in attendance at OSS to join together to build connections to carry through the event and beyond. Our hope is that this event will help to continue to increase the diversity both at the event as well as in the open source community as time goes on.

Who Can Attend?

This event welcomes our attendees that are underrepresented minorities in tech; women, people of color, LGBTQA+, and people with disabilities. Please join us to connect and share experiences.

Is this Event Open to Allies?

No. Allies are incredibly important to further diversity in tech and the world, however, at this time, we’ve chosen to limit attendance to underrepresented minorities in tech, to provide this community a dedicated space to share their unique experiences and perspectives.

We encourage allies to support diversity in tech while at OSS by participating in the Diversity Empowerment Summit, and by seeking out and engaging with diverse attendees onsite.
