Together, the Magento community organizes events in over 30 countries around the globe. There are certified Magento Developers and Solution Specialists on six out of seven continents. As ecommerce professionals, we have many roles and responsibilities including, but not limited to, developers, marketers, merchandisers, designers, analysts, and customer support specialists. While we can’t agree on which operating system is the best for our multiple devices, we can agree that diversity plays an important role in technology and innovation. How then can we, as a community, and as individuals, work together to build an inclusive Magento community?
