Diversity -- Promoting diversity in the Python community

 

About the Diversity list
English (USA)

The goal of this list is to move the Python community in the direction of dreamwidth.org's Diversity Statement, partially reproduced here:

We welcome people of any gender identity or expression, race, ethnicity, size, nationality, sexual orientation, ability level, religion, culture, subculture, and political opinion.


Before posting, we request that new list subscribers lurk for a couple of weeks and/or read the archives for the past couple of weeks. That will help us avoid repetitive discussions.

Beginner questions about sexism, racism, and so on are welcome on this list, though extended discussion should either be relevant to the Python community or moved to other forums.

In any given discussion, you may not be aware that you are asking beginner questions. Beginner questions or concerns do not always have short answers, and often the answers already exist elsewhere. If you are asked to do some reading or take your questions to a different forum, please respect this. We have assembled resources relevant to the diversity effort in the Python community at DiversityInPython

Personal attacks of any kind are not tolerated on this list. If you have a problem with someone on the list, please raise the issue off-list with the list admins (diversity-owner@python.org).

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the Diversity mailing list archives (the archive is only available to list subscribers)

Subscribing to the Diversity Mailing List

Subscribe to the Diversity Mailing List by filling out the following form. You will be sent email requesting confirmation, to prevent others from gratuitously subscribing you. Once confirmation is received, your request will be held for approval by the list moderator. You will be notified of the moderator's decision by email. This is also a hidden list, which means that the list of members is available only to the list administrator.

    Your email address:  
    Your name (optional):  
    You may enter a privacy password below. This provides only mild security, but should prevent others from messing with your subscription. Do not use a valuable password as it will occasionally be emailed back to you in cleartext.

    If you choose not to enter a password, one will be automatically generated for you, and it will be sent to you once you've confirmed your subscription. You can always request a mail-back of your password when you edit your personal options. Once a month, your password will be emailed to you as a reminder.
