Diversity at Percona Live

For those attending Percona Live it is important to us that you feel safe and welcome at our event. We would like to draw the attention of all attendees to our code of conduct.

We recognize and encourage diversity at all Percona events. Moreover, we understand that some attendees may encounter particular challenges when attending events of this nature. The information here may answer some of your questions related to the facilities we plan to provide. If you have any special requests that are not addressed here, please contact our community team, Lorraine Pocklington and Tom Basil, in confidence via community-team@percona.com. They will explore with you the best way to accommodate your requests and if we are able to meet your needs.

Food
We will offer vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options for lunch.

Speaker Training
For speakers, perhaps this is your first time speaking at a conference or maybe you have spoken hundreds of times before? This year we will offer training on presentation delivery. We will also provide you with slide templates which are easy to follow and reduce the time spent on aesthetics.
