IMPROVING DIVERSITY IN THE TECH COMMUNITY 

Continuing our initiative of DPC2018, we are extending the DPC Scholarship Fund for the 2019 conference.

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 for everyone regardless of gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race or religion. We are committed to maximize opportunities for these groups and to do our part responsibly in helping to resolve the imbalance that exists today in our communities.

The DPC scholarship fund is sponsoring tickets for the DPC conference to members of underrepresented groups with the purpose of encouraging them to join this tech community.

  • If employed, your employer will not cover the cost of your conference attendance
  • You must agree to follow our Code of Conduct
  • You must be 18+ years old to apply
