We want to support people with different voices and ideas to attend Kiwi Ruby

The Ruby community should reflect the diversity and vibrancy of New Zealand, and people from underrepresented backgrounds should have the opportunity to participate fully in our community.

Thanks to Ackama, we are able to offer Diversity Scholarships for people who would otherwise not be able to afford to make it to Kiwi Ruby, but would benefit from attending.

Scholarships cover the cost of a ticket and we may be able to cover your travel costs within New Zealand. Anyone is welcome to apply, but we’ll prioritise people from groups underrepresented in the Ruby community. Applications are now closed.

Made possible by

Experts in strategy, design and technology. Whether it's a new product, improved systems or organisational change, our team is the key to your technology goals.

We believe that diversity is an important part of any healthy culture, and ensures a range of knowledge and experience can be brought to bear in developing solutions. We are proud to be providing scholarships to Kiwi Ruby and encouraging the growth of diversity in the Wellington technology culture.

Kiwi Ruby wouldn't be possible without
the support of our friends.
