Diversity

The Umbraco community is known as 'the friendliest community' around. The Belgian Umbraco Usergroup wants to actively work on diversity to prove this statement.

The Belgian Umbraco Festival is inspired by a diverse audience. Diversity on stage is a key priority, and something we think hard about when we're selecting speakers — but we're working hard to increase diversity in our audience as well.

The Belgian Umbraco Festival is open and welcoming to everyone. As improving the diversity should be one of the core values within the tech industry, we’ve decided to drive diversity and inclusion in our conference, too.

With this in mind, we’re giving away 10 tickets to people from underrepresented groups in the technology and/or open source communities who may not have the opportunity to attend The Belgian Umbraco Festival for various reasons.

These groups include, but are not limited to, women, people of color, individuals with a disability, minority ethnic people, LGBTQIA people, and others.

​Diversity Tickets are available by sending an email. Diversity tickets are awarded based on a combination of need and impact. Awarded recipients will receive a complimentary ticket to the conference. Diversity Tickets are limited to one per person.

Send your request to: info@buug.be

Please note, travel expenses are not covered under diversity ticket and are the responsibility of the recipient.
