W3C Launches 2020 Diversity Fund for Its TPAC Online Meetings
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is now accepting applications for the Diversity Fund for its TPAC 2020 virtual meetings, scheduled for various dates in October. It states, “We believe that more diversity means better representation, which leads to better and more inclusive design. We believe that more background, more use cases, more edge cases, lead to a better Web. More diversity also brings higher quality results.” To qualify, “Diversity Fund applicants must be from a group that is under-represented in the Web community, and unable to participate in TPAC without financial help.”
The Diversity Fund is “sponsored by W3C Members Adobe, Samsung Electronics, Coil, Littleguy SL, Microsoft, TetraLogical, Siteimprove; and one anonymous individual sponsor.” W3C is contributing to the fund for the first time and plans to do so in the future.
View the application form (registration required) for details. Applications are due by Sept. 27, 2020.
