Cloud Foundry Summit
Austin, TX | June 25, 2020

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion

Education and collaboration are vital to the future of the Cloud Foundry Foundation, 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. Our code of conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our community, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.

Scholarships

To encourage and increase the participation of a diverse community, we are pleased to offer diversity and need-based scholarships, as well as travel funding, to Summit.

Onsite Resources

Nursing Room

A private nursing room will be available at the event to aid in the comfort and accessibility for our nursing attendees. The room will be available all days of the event and will be located onsite. For location information, please check with registration or information desk staff onsite.

Child Care

Complimentary childcare will be available onsite during event days. Check out the Open Source Summit North America Child Care page for more information and to RSVP.  Please note, we are unable to accommodate onsite sign-ups.

Venue Accessibility

If you need any assistance locating an elevator, or have other questions about accessibility onsite, please speak to a member of the Cloud Foundry event staff at any of the registration or information desks onsite. If you have questions prior to the event, please email events@cloudfoundry.org.

Wheelchair + Medical Equipment Rental

If you need a wheelchair or scooter, you can rent them from Martin Mobility. Please contact them directly for rates and availability.

Communication Stickers

At Registration, attendees can pick up communication stickers to add to their badges. Communication stickers indicate an attendee’s requested level of interaction with both other attendees and press (including photographers and videographers).

  • Green = Open to communicate.
  • Yellow = Only if you know me, please.
  • Red = I’m not interested in communicating (or being videotaped or photographed) at this time.

Please be respectful of attendee communication preferences.

Pronoun Stickers

Pick up a pronoun sticker from registration to share your pronouns with other conference attendees. Please be respectful of attendees’ pronouns.

Quiet Room

All attendees may feel free to use the Quiet Room as needed. It is a physical space where conversation and interaction are not allowed, where attendees can go if for any reason they can’t interact with other attendees at that time.

All-Gender Restrooms

We will designate specific restrooms as all-gender for attendees who feel more comfortable using those facilities.

First Aid/Medical Assistance

If you require first aid or medical assistance, please visit our registration desk and we can direct you to the First Aid station onsite.

How to Handle a Harassment Report

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the event staff immediately. Event staff can be identified by staff badges and/or shirts onsite and can be found at the event registration counter at any time. Our staff has had incident response training, responds to harassments reports and does so in accordance with the process recommended by the Ada Initiative, which can be found here on the Geek Feminism Wiki.

Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference.

If you are planning to attend an upcoming event and have concerns regarding another individual who may be present, please reach out to us pre-event. Precautions will be taken to ensure a victim’s comfort and safety, including, but not limited to providing an escort, prepping onsite event staff, keeping victim and harasser from attending the same talks/social events and providing onsite contact cell phone numbers for immediate contact.
