Masaaki Horikoshi is a committer of pandas/Dask.

*2 Diversity Priority Seat

We prepared Diversity Priority Seat to bring Diversity and open mind into our community. Statistically, it is known that a majority of participants in a tech meetup is working-adult-men. Therefore, this event has some priority seats for non-majorities.

Specific cases are a student, women, non-binary and so on. We never check and judge an attendee's attributes. We trust your goodwill.

Diversity Priority Seat とは、PyCon night Tokyo がより多様性をもち開かれたイベントであることを目指すために用意された取り組みです。統計的に、技術系勉強会の参加者数は社会人男性が最も多いことが知られています。PyCon night Tokyo では、社会人男性以外 の参加者の席を先着で確保する枠を設けました。
