On a different axis of diversity, I'd also encourage people to let others know which languages they speak. The meeting itself is (usually) in English, but the breaks are free, and it's unfortunate when a linguistic/geographic minority retreats into a corner and stays isolated even when a bunch of other people in the room actually speak their language.
