There's no one size fits all approach to addressing diversity, equity, and inclusion in open source projects. Lindsay and Dan will present their experiences of improving community health. The content builds upon their leadership in the formation of open source bodies including Hyperledger, Confidential Compute Consortium, and Open Source Security Foundation.
