We love being part of a vibrant web design and development community. We benefit daily from the generous contributions of others, and believe that a diverse network of shared experiences and ideas makes all of our work stronger. In addition to our open source software and public speaking, we are proud to sponsor organizations that increase diversity in the community – from race and gender, to identity and sexuality – and events that bring the whole community together in thoughtful and inclusive ways. And then, on occasion, we also sponsor the communities and events that keep us entertained and fulfilled outside of work.
