Diversity & Inclusion


Education and collaboration are vital to the future of the Linux Foundation ecosystem, and it is imperative to us that everyone in the community that wants to participate feels welcome to do so regardless of gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, age, religion or economic status. The Linux Foundation code of conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our community, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.

Here are just some of the ways we encourage more diversity & inclusion in and around our events:

  • No all-male panels, all-male speaker line-ups, or all-male keynote line-ups
  • Request speakers to take our Inclusive Speaker Orientation, created in collaboration with the National Center for Women & Information Technology
  • Accessibility Considerations – wheelchair-accessible venues and food allergy management.
  • Non-Alcoholic Beverages available at all social events
  • Gender Neutral Event Shirt Sizing
  • Event Code of Conduct clearly communicated
  • Diversity scholarship funding


To encourage and increase the participation of a diverse community, we are pleased to offer diversity and need-based scholarships and discounts to our conferences. Read more information on FinOps X Scholarships and Travel Funding.
