Diversity as a Dependency

A session at EuroPython 2011

Monday 20th June, 2011

6:30pm to 7:30pm (CET)

The PSF recently adopted a diversity statement. While some argue that we should do this just because it's "the right thing to do", others question why we, as a technical community, should even worry about diversity. This talk addresses the diversity question, not in moralistic or ethical terms, but in pragmatic ones. Studies on creativity and productivity demonstrate the potential benefits of diversity for the Python community. Making Python the best language it can be is not merely helped by increasing diversity, but may be dependent on diversity.
