Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Tech Session

Thursday, 30 November 18:00 – 19:00 (UTC+1)

Where: Side Room

We believe that diversity is one of our strengths. The Diversity, Equity and inclusion session aims to support us in shaping a safer, more inclusive, open and welcoming RIPE community. We aim to remove barriers that prevent participation, particularly those that affect underrepresented groups in the community. This session provides space for the RIPE community to reflect on its own practices, to learn from what has worked in other communities, to allow less-heard voices to emerge and above all, to listen to one another respectfully.

Lightning Talks

At RIPE 87, we would like to open the floor for the RIPE community to share their experiences and perspectives, diversity developments and practices when it comes to DEI. We plan to have a number of short lightning talks.

Open Discussion

There will be a discussion after each Lightning Talk. Are you involved in supporting diversity, equity and inclusion efforts in technical communities? Do you have a fresh take on how RIPE Meetings could be more inclusive? Can you reflect on practices in your own field? If you are involved with any communities that are doing interesting things in this area, feel free to share your experiences during the discussion.

Everyone is welcome!
