We believe that diversity drives innovation, and we’re committed to fostering an inclusive environment at DataStax Accelerate 2020. Our goal at DataStax Accelerate is to provide the best content and experience for everyone interested in learning how NoSQL enables business agility. Launching a diversity scholarship program, ensures that we have fully inclusive events at both DataStax Accelerate San Diego (May 11-13) and London (June 2-3). 

The DataStax Accelerate Diversity Scholarship Program provides financial support for people from traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized groups in the technology and/or open source communities to attend our events. People who identify with any group (including, but not limited to: persons identifying as LGBTQ, women, persons of color, and/or persons with disabilities) are encouraged to apply.

At DataStax Accelerate, attendees will hear how leading companies are using NoSQL, share best practices, and discover what’s on the horizon for DataStax products as well as Apache Cassandra. The event features speakers from global leaders such as Alibaba, Confluent, Dell.com, Ericsson, FedEx, ING, Intuit, Target, and more.

DataStax will provide 10 full scholarships for San Diego and five for London. Recipients will receive a two night stay at the conference hotel and complimentary passes to the conference and workshops. Transportation is not included.
