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.

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 staff onsite.

Child Care
Complimentary child care will be available onsite during event days. Check out our Child Care page for more information and to RSVP.

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.

Wheelchair & Medical Equipment Rental
If you need a wheelchair or scooter, you can rent them from Special Needs Group. Please contact them directly for rates and availability.

Preferred Pronoun Stickers
Pick up a preferred pronoun sticker from registration to share your preferred pronoun with other conference attendees. Please be respectful of attendee communication preferences.

Quiet Room
All attendees may feel free to use the Quiet Room as needed. It is a physical space where conversation and interaction are not allowed, where attendees can go if for any reason they can’t interact with other attendees at that time.

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 by the Ada Initiative, which can be found here on the Geek Feminism Wiki.
