In the Hyperledger Community, the phrase “All Are Welcome Here” is a common message heard around Hyperledger events, meetings and other community interactions. However, how does the community ensure and fulfill that promise? Most open source communities are not single entities and are comprised of many smaller groups that form around WGs, SIGs, and projects.

This session will go through the best practices for conducting meetings, writing code reviews and enabling asynchronous collaboration to create an inclusive environment.
