Conference Diversity Scholarship Program

We believe that the most engaging, intellectually stimulating conversations are founded in diversity. Different backgrounds and varied life experiences foster unique perspectives. We want our conferences, the Apache Flink community and companies who participate in them, to include, encourage, and recognize people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions and sexual orientations. Flink Forward is offering scholarships to members of underrepresented groups in the technical community to help break down the barriers that prevent underrepresented groups from participating in Flink Forward.
