Improving diversity in the tech community.
The DPC Scholarship Fund is excited to announce the availability of a free ticket for each scheduled workshop of DPC21s Online Workshops on June 17, 2021.
We believe diversity enriches our community and supports the principal purpose of our conference: sharing expertise, experience and insights with each other in an open, inclusive environment. We are committed to do our part by responsibly helping to resolve the imbalance that exists today in our communities. For DPC21 we are sponsoring tickets for the DPC Online Workshop to members of underrepresented groups.
