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?Hyperledger’s community is not a single entity and is comprised of many smaller groups that form around WGs, SIGs, and projects. With so many groups, meetings, mailing lists how can community leaders effectively create an inclusive and civil environment to cultivate a diverse community? This session will go through the best practices for conducting meetings, writing code reviews and enabling asynchronous collaboration to create an inclusive environment. Though focused on Hyperledger tools, these skills can apply broadly to any open source project.
