Our commitment to the Dask Distributed Summit 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.

An inclusive environment at Dask Distributed Summit is a common resource. It is like air and water. We are all participants and contributors and have the potential to positively impact our environment, both within the conference and the greater community.

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