> Dear Conference Committee,
> It has recently been brought to my attention by a member of our community that she noticed the absence of a Code of Conduct for the upcoming Seoul FOSS4G. I took this as a huge sign that the work that has been done by LOCs in recent FOSS4G, regional OSGeo events, and other technology and geography events towards encouraging diversity and a welcoming atmosphere to all is indeed being noticed. I have also been excited to see based simply on the measure of gender diversity that the numbers of female speakers has been steadily moving up over the past couple years.
> I would like to encourage the Conference Committee (and I am volunteering to do much of the leg work) to provide guidelines for implementing a Code of Conduct at events for all FOSS4G/OSGeo related events and to include diversity initiatives as part of future calls for proposals for the international event.
> While I believe it is too late for the conference committee to make any mandates to the Seoul team, is there anyone who knows the folks on the LOC that would be willing to help me reach out to explain the importance of these initiatives?
