Our commitment to the PyData community is to create an inclusive and respectful conference environment that invites participation of people from all backgrounds. We welcome a diverse attendance to foster deeper discussions and build a stronger community.


D&I touches every aspect of the conference, and we have various initiatives to promote diversity and inclusivity at PyData Global. Below are some examples:

What we are doing:

  • The Code of Conduct is strictly enforced

What you can do:

  • Share and participate in the various ways: review talk/tutorial/poster/sprint proposals, submit talk/tutorial/poster/sprint proposals, volunteer, attend
  • Share our information with affinity groups
  • Contact us with any accommodation needs
  • Share suggestions with us

What speakers can do:

  • Set up space and headphones so that people can hear you at all times
  • Repeat questions asked by an audience member in chat
  • Use color-blind accessible palettes in proposals, presentations and posters

What we all can do:

  • Follow our code of conduct and communicate any issues
  • Use inclusive language
  • PacMan Rule: include others in discussion, leave space open in circle for others to join

We invite you to share any thoughts and suggestions related to diversity by writing to [email protected]
