TPAC Diversity Fund

W3C has established a modest TPAC Diversity Fund, generously sponsored by W3C Members Siteimprove, The Paciello Group, Microsoft, Samsung Electronics, TetraLogical, Dyno Mapper, Adobe.

As an international organization, we can see the immense value we gain from having greater gender diversity, and expertise from across multiple countries and cultures.

Applicants should be from a group that is under-represented in the web community, and unable to attend TPAC without financial help. Applications are due 14 July 2019.

Please find more information in the application form:

If your organization or yourself wishes to become a sponsor, please let us know!
