create a place where community members (including companies that compete with each other) could work together to fund open source projects that beneﬁt science, engineering, math, and data-science. ! Through both signiﬁcant personal and company donations of money and time, several people at Continuum have continued to work to get Numfocus organized, funded, and operational as well as the create, organize, and promote the PyData conference series.
collaboration, whether it's on PEPs, patches, problems, or otherwise. We're receptive to constructive comment and criticism, as the experiences and skill sets of other members contribute to the whole of our efforts. We're accepting of all who wish to take part in our activities, fostering an environment where anyone can participate and everyone can make a difference. Open Considerate Members of the community are considerate of their peers -- other Python users. We're thoughtful when addressing the efforts of others, keeping in mind that often times the labor was completed simply for the good of the community. We're attentive in our communications, whether in person or online, and we're tactful when approaching differing views. Members of the community are respectful. We're respectful of others, their positions, their skills, their commitments, and their efforts. We're respectful of the volunteer efforts that permeate the Python community. We're respectful of the processes set forth in the community, and we work within them. When we disagree, we are courteous in raising our issues. Overall, we're good to each other. We contribute to this community not because we have to, but because we want to. If we remember that, these guidelines will come naturally. Respectful

a fairly homogeneous group. This can make some feel alone and make it difﬁcult for them to contribute. ! Yet, it’s the contributions of diverse members that will make the community robust and able to reach its full potential.
• Diversity scholarships and invited speakers • Particular sub communities (PyLadies, etc.) • Using our frontal lobe to overcome the natural, biological tendency to stereotype and exclude as we form community • Diverse individuals becoming a role-model for others: • Build something useful • Be accessible to talk about it and promote it • The community must be formed based on ideas in our minds and not on the incidental details of our DNA.
