Project Proposal

The Ortelius project is being proposed as a new CDF project.

Diversity at the CDF

We published the Transparency Report for cdCon. There’s a lot of great stuff in the report but there’s one standout stat worth shouting about:

14% of attendees were women or non-binary

Now at first glance, 14% does not seem like something worth celebrating—but it is. With cdCon we also made a deliberate effort and were thrilled to have 38% of speakers and 58% of keynote speakers be women or non-binary. 

Read the ED Weekly by Tracy Miranda for more information and the full Transparency Report.
