Folks,

We have submitted a new I-D, entitled "Diversity and Inclusiveness in 
the IETF".

The I-D is available at: 
https://www.ietf.org/archive/id/draft-gont-diversity-analysis-00.txt

We expect that our document be discussed in the gendispatch wg 
(https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/gendispatch/about/). But given the 
breadth of the topic and possible views, we'll be glad to discuss it
where necessary/applicable/desired.

As explicitly noted in our I-D, we're probably only scratching the 
surface here -- but we believe that our document is probably a good 
start to discuss many aspects of diversity that deserve discussion.

Thanks!

Regards,
--
