The Umbraco community is know as 'the friendliest community' around. The Dutch Umbraco Usergroup also want an effort toward diversity.
DUUGFest conference feels inspired by a diverse audience. Diversity on our stage is a key priority for us, and something we think hard about when we're selecting speakers — and we're working to increase diversity in our audience as well.
However, diversity and inclusion aren’t just about speakers. Even if we attract more and more diverse audience every year, there should be more actions done to speed up the process.
DUUGFest is open and welcoming to everyone. As improving the diversity should be one of the core values within the tech industry, we’ve decided to drive diversity and inclusion in our conference, too.
With this in mind, we’re giving away 10 tickets to people from underrepresented groups in the technology and/or open source communities who may not have the opportunity to attend DUUGFest for various reasons.
These groups include, but are not limited to, women, people of color, individuals with a disability, minority ethnic people, LGBTQIA people, and others.
