O'Reilly believes strongly in the value of increasing diversity at our conferences and creating a productive and inclusive environment for all participants.
To help support diversity in the technology community, while Velocity registration is open, we're raising funds to send to Black Data Processing Associates, an organization that brings underrepresented minorities together who are working in the information technology and computer science fields for the purpose of professional development and academic enrichment.
We ask that you join us in supporting this worthy organization by making a donation when you sign up. O'Reilly will match those donations at the end of the conference. We wouldn't usually make a financial contribution selected by default, but we hope this underscores how crucial we think it is to support diversity.
Thank you for considering this project. We welcome your thoughts about this or other successful diversity efforts you've encountered. Send suggestions, comments, and feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
