Delivering the experiences that make our world a better place is about more than writing lines of code—it’s about fostering a community that reflects the diverse perspectives of our broader society. From the Chasing Grace Project to diversity research in the OpenStack and Mozilla communities, and many other endeavors, there is progress in understanding and fostering diversity and inclusion to help ensure a strong future for the technology industry.

This panel discussion brings together leaders on this issue from across the open source ecosystem to explore how we can dive in and collectively implement recommendations derived from these data-driven insights.
