The purpose of this Working Group (WG) is to create a cross-industry effort to encourage diversity and inclusion across the open source software ecosystem for VFX and animation. The WG will bring together software engineers/developers, marketing/communications professionals, HR, and anyone else passionate about Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) within VFX and animation. We have developed three pillars under which to organize initiatives:
