The Drupal Association is committed to elevating the voices and lived experiences of historically marginalized people around the globe and in our communities. In his 2019 Driesnote address, Dries Buytaert spoke to the diversity challenge in open source, noting that participation data collected from the Drupal Project follows the same trends.
Historically oppressed communities are identified as those who have endured and continue to endure harm due to oppressive global systems. Drupal Association recognizes and acts upon the framework of intersectionality, highlighting that marginalized community members often face multiple, coexisting forms of oppression. By prioritizing historically oppressed people, we can create equitable and inclusive spaces for everyone to contribute and thrive.
