Join the Velocity Community in Supporting Per Scholas

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 Per Scholas. We ask that you join us in supporting this worthy organization by making a donation when you sign up. We'll match those donations at the end of the conference.

We've chosen to support Per Scholas, a national nonprofit organization, because their mission is to break the cycle of poverty by providing technology education, access, training, and job placement services for people in low-income communities. Students from the Per Scholas program will be attending Velocity on Wednesday, October 16.

O'Reilly 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
