O'Reilly and Cloudera believe 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 Strata + Hadoop World registration is open, we're raising funds to send to Anita Borg Institute. Since 1987, ABI has been on a quest to accelerate the pace of global innovation by working to ensure that the creators of technology mirror the people and societies who use it. Today, ABI works with women technologists in over 50 countries, and partners with leading academic institutions and Fortune 500 companies.
We ask that you join us in supporting this worthy organization by making a $10 donation when you register for the conference. O'Reilly and Cloudera will each 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. Of course you can choose not to donate, or to contribute directly if you prefer.
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. Find out more about promoting diversity: O'Reilly conference diversity and Cloudera Cares.
