PyCon AU gender diversity grants for women in Python!

PyCon AU is pleased to announce that it will be offering two gender diversity delegate grants to women who wish to attend PyCon AU in 2011. These grants will both cover full registration costs; in addition, one of the grants will cover up to $AUD500 of travel and accommodation costs for a woman living outside of the Sydney region to attend.

PyCon 2018 Code of Conduct Transparency Report

The PyCon Code of Conduct sets standards for how our community interacts with others during the conference. For 2018 the Code of Conduct underwent an extensive overhaul, our procedures for reporting and responding to incidents were improved, and our on-site methods were improved.
