O'Reilly's Web 2.0 Seeks Diversity in Conference Participation

From the O'Reilly Website:

"O'Reilly Media and UBM TechWeb believe in spreading the knowledge of innovators. We believe that innovation is enhanced by a variety of perspectives, and our goal is to create an inclusive, respectful conference environment that invites participation from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, and sexual orientations.

We're actively seeking to increase the diversity of our attendees, speakers, and sponsors through our calls for proposals, other open submission processes, and through dialogue with the larger communities we serve.

This is an ongoing process. We are talking to our program chairs, program committees, and various innovators, experts, and organizations about this goal and about ways they can help us achieve it."

There's a current call for participation for the New York Expo, which takes place October 18 - 21. The call for proposals closes 11:59pm 04/12/2010 EDT. For more info on submitting a proposal, check out Web 2.0 Expo New York Call for Participation.
