PyConKR 2018 Keynote: Committing to diversity and inclusion

A presentation at PyConKR 2018 in in Seoul, South Korea by Sujin Lee

The PyCon along with its staff, participants and speakers all around the world stands by its Python Software Foundation's diversity statement, and all our members are outspoken diversity advocates. Diversity awareness is fundamental not only for open source projects, tech communities, companies, and their products but also in our everyday lives. We believe that inclusion is the key to building a society that respects diversity in which everyone can achieve growth and be accepted for who they are. Inclusion involves maintaining a professional and productive atmosphere where everyone can feel valued and appreciated.

In this talk, I will present how Python communities, such as Django Girls, are helping an under-represented group in tech to speak out more, and thereby promoting diversity and inclusion in many practical ways. I'd like to share my personal story with you, and I hope it could give you an idea of how we can work together in real life towards the same goal.
