Diversity & Inclusion

Six Feet Up aims to create diverse and inclusive events for all attendees to enjoy. We are always looking for feedback on how to improve our events.

Our goal is to create an inclusive, respectful conference environment that invites participation from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, political affiliation and sexual orientations. Six Feet Up and its organizers, volunteers, and staff fully support and endorse the Python Software Foundation's diversity statement:

“The Python Software Foundation and the global Python community welcome and encourage participation by everyone. Our community is based on mutual respect, tolerance, and encouragement, and we are working to help each other live up to these principles. We want our community to be more diverse: whoever you are, and whatever your background, we welcome you.”

We're actively seeking to increase the diversity of our attendees, speakers, and sponsors through our calls for proposals, other open submission processes, and through dialogue with the larger communities we serve.

This is an ongoing process. We are talking to experts and organizations about this goal and about ways they can help us achieve it. If you feel that there is more we can do, or if you would like to get involved, please reach out to us at ​events@sixfeetup.com.
