<p>In order to ensure a balanced program, we are proactively doing outreach to new and experienced speakers alike. We are also including a blind review phase in our <a href="/program/selection-process">selection process</a> in order to combat bias. Our goal is to have no less than 33% of our speakers be not-men, ideally 50%, and to reflect the racial diversity of United States and Bay Area demographics.</p>

<p>Conservancy is home to many popular <a href="https://sfconservancy.org/projects/current/">free and open source software projects</a>, like <a href="http://www.seleniumhq.org/">Selenium</a>, <a href="https://www.phpmyadmin.net/">phpMyAdmin</a>, <a href="https://twistedmatrix.com/trac/">Twisted</a>, and <a href="https://www.gnome.org/outreachy/">Outreachy</a>, some of which run their own events. North Bay Python has the distinct honor of being the first member project that is exclusively focused on organizing community events.</p>
 

	
 
<p>We couldn't be more excited. We're celebrating by donating five free tickets to Outreachy interns and will be promoting member projects relevant to the Python community at the conference. Interested Outreachy interns should <a href="mailto:outreach@northbaypython.org">contact us</a>. We'll also have discounted tickets available for active financial supporters of Software Freedom Conservancy - details will be announced when tickets go on sale.</p>
