As as global, mature and popular programming language, the open source ecosystem around JavaScript has had several high-profile bumps in the road - from major tech mishaps to high profile community rifts. The OpenJS Foundation, a central yet global hub for open source JavaScript projects, plays an important role smoothing the road back out. There are always challenges when different communities come together. Finding a fair, equitable, and inclusive approach is necessary. In this panel, key individuals will share their experiences driving change and solving problems in the open. They will discuss how they have employed bottoms-up approaches to build stronger, more inclusive tech communities that empower developers all over the globe.
