Two of our leaders, Tara King and Ruby Sinreich, gave a presentation about diversity and DDI at BADcamp 2018 in Berkeley, CA.
Last week we had a great group of volunteers representing Drupal Diversity and Inclusion at DrupalGovCon. Ruby Sinreich and Dori Kelner co-presented a session to help people understand the challenges we face as a community and what DDI is doing about it.

Wondering what Drupal Diversity & Inclusion is planning for DrupalCon Nashville? Here’s a comprehensive list of our activities
As of this writing, our #diversity-inclusion slack channel has 428 members. When I started the Drupal Diversity & Inclusion Group after DrupalCon New Orleans, I hoped that it would become something that people rallied behind and got involved with, but I didn’t set any long-term strategic plans. We grew slowly over the first ~9 months or so, and had a growth explosion in the last few months.
This year at DrupalCon, the Drupal Diversity & Inclusion Working Group will have a booth in the exhibit hall. We plan to have a fun and engaging activity for visitors, which will involve taking their photo and printing it out with an imposed filter that says “This is what a Drupalist looks like!” or similar. We plan to hang these photos as a collage behind our booth, post them to instagram, and offer a copy to each visitor. We want to show how diverse the Drupal community is with a fun and striking visual.
The Drupal Diversity working group was established in June 2016 after DrupalCon New Orleans. We began meeting regularly and in our ~6 months of activity and we have accomplished a lot.
