Chat: #fedora-diversity[?]
This is where real-time chat with Diversity team members happens.

The Fedora Project and Red Hat 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.

We recognize that there are specific attributes that are used to discriminate against people. In alphabetical order, some of these attributes include (but are not limited to): age, culture, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, national origin, physical or mental difference, politics, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and subculture. No matter how you identify yourself or how others perceive you: we welcome you. We welcome contributions from everyone as long as they interact constructively with our community.

We are committed to being a community that everyone feels good about joining. Please, refer to our Code of Conduct if you need more information.


The goal of this diversity initiative is to help promote an inclusive community within Fedora. To do this, we assist the Diversity Advisor with the planning and implementation of diversity efforts such as the enforcement of the code of conduct, creating Fedora Magazine articles highlighting the diverse community in Fedora, and offering workshops and fostering communication between Fedora sub-projects.

Getting Assistance
