Do you run or attend WordPress events and notice only one type of person is attending? You’d love to see more diversity represented, but people are either not showing up — or they attend once and don’t come back. What can you do to be a good ally to foster, promote, and support diversity and an inclusive space?

This workshop is beneficial for all levels of Diversity and Inclusion knowledge, from complete beginners to experienced event organizers who are already incorporating good practises. This is not just for organizers, but anyone who wants to champion this kind of environment at official WordPress events, now or in the future.
