Short thesis: 

Developer conferences are still facing big troubles when it comes to diversity on stage and in the audience. The droidcon Berlin 2015 team decided they want to start making a change.

Description: 

In this meet-up Anna-Lena König, head of droidcon Berlin 2015 describes how she and her team developed the first diversity program for droidcon Berlin. With little resources and some organisational changes like anonymised call for papers applications, a speaker meet-up with coaching and an attendee support program in cooperation with Intel. She'll talk about the steps they implemented, the goals they had and gives an insight into the results that can already be seen.

droidcon Berlin takes place on June 3-6, 2015.
