Diverse Communities Are Stronger Communities
Decades of research on large, innovative organizations shows that social diversity generates better technical and financial outcomes. When people of diverse backgrounds come together to solve problems, they bring different perspectives and generate new and better ideas.
At The Linux Foundation we believe that diverse open source communities lead to superior, sustainable open source technologies. That’s why we are working to create supportive and welcoming communities across all of our projects.
By providing free or low-cost access to events and skills training, we are also committed to making sure our future includes a well-trained, diverse workforce. And our partnerships with other nonprofit organizations and sponsorship of community events help expand our reach to underserved communities that wouldn’t otherwise have access to these opportunities.
