We have been lucky to foster a diverse group of people in our community since starting Monki Gras, and do our very best to create a conference environment in which everyone feels welcome.

This year we are once again running our diversity and inclusion programme, which not only includes a free ticket to the conference, but is designed to support folks from under-represented groups before, during and after the event. We provide mentors and a community welcome, and business cards from Moo to help make great first impressions. The idea is to do more than just give away a free ticket to the event. We want to lower barriers to participation, and help create opportunities for people.

Our definition of under-represented groups is tech is intentionally wide. We don’t exclude anyone on the basis of ability, class, colour, gender or creed.

This year we want to do a much better job of accessibility. Please let us know about any ability needs you have, and we’ll do our very best to accommodate them.
