We want people with different experiences and perspectives to become part of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), because without diverse voices in every part of our community we cannot lead the web to its full potential.
One way we hope to do this is by inviting people from under-represented communities to stop by and chat with members of the W3C community. We’ve borrowed the “open office hours” idea from colleges and universities where instructors set aside time each week to talk with their students. Members of the W3C Inclusion and Diversity Community Group (IDCG) are holding open office hours to chat with people from under-represented groups who would like to know more about W3C and how to get involved, but do not know where to start.
You can find out more on the IDCG open office hours page, including how to find time to chat with one of the IDCG volunteers.
