Diversity & Inclusion Volunteer @ Mozfest!

Mozilla’s annual, hands-on festival (affectionately known as MozFest) is dedicated to forging the future of the open Web. It’s where passionate technologists, educators and creators unite to hack on innovative solutions for the Web’s most pressing issues.

Last year, we made giant leaps to make our festival more accessible to more people. In 2018, we want to further innovate for diverse experiences, and inclusive event design - to make Mozfest a shining example of all that is possible when everyone is empowered to participate.

And we need a bit of help.

We are looking for one volunteer, to contribute towards accessibility design for Mozfest.
