On October 12, 2009, the Board of the Python Software Foundation adopted the following Diversity Statement:
The Python Software Foundation and the global Python community welcome and encourage participation by everyone. Our community is based on mutual respect, tolerance, and encouragement, and we are working to help each other live up to these principles. We want our community to be more diverse: whoever you are, and whatever your background, we welcome you.
For additional resources on efforts to promote diversity within the Python community, please see the main diversity page.
