Current Initiatives

The Drupal Diversity & Inclusion Working Group (DDI) is currently working on the following projects:

  • Speakers Initiative - while there have been improvements within the Drupal community in terms of improving the diversity of speakers at meetups, Drupal Camps and DrupalCons, we still have room to grow. Working towards gender parity is one goal, but we also want to make sure we work on increased representation for people of color, as well as for people in other underrepresented groups.

  • Infrastructural improvements to the DDI website & online presence

  • DD&I Contrib Team, a group working to increase code-based contributions from individuals from under-represented groups to the Drupal project. We meet in Drupal slack in #ddi-contrib-team (meeting schedule). 

  • DD&I Session Help, a group working to support and mentor people from underrepresented groups as they prepare session proposals for camps & cons. We meet in Drupal slack in #ddi-session-help. 

  • DD&I Career Initiative, a group working to help those who are seeking a job, looking to hire, or looking for career advice. There is a channel in the Drupal slack: #ddi-careers

  •  DrupalCon Seattle planning
