Conference Schedule - PGConf.EU 2019

Postgres Women: what is it, why does it matter and what can everyone do about it?

Date: 2019-10-18
Time: 09:30 - 10:20
Room: Manzoni
Level: Beginner

Postgres Women is a non-profit organisation to support women and other minorities to participate in the PostgreSQL environment, with the aim of promoting a safe space which encourages diversity.

This talk will focus on underlining the different aspects of the importance of an acceptant and inclusive community, and how anyone can contribute to it.

An analytical breakdown of the community will be performed, performing a survey to understand how groups are actually different in members (gender, nationality, language, …).

Statistics will be compared with the IT community as a whole, to see whether PostgreSQL is reflective of the broader IT groups, and some ideas to further encourage and respect diversity will be shared.
