No, it doesn't. Actually, I don't know. Maybe it does, maybe it doesn't.

My point is that, for other aspects of "diversity", no measurements were
expected/requested regarding whether going to a venue that is "friendly"
to that community increases the participation of such community. --
That's essentially my point: there doesn't seem to be consistency here.

Not sure why location should be a special case. Maybe some forms of
diversity are just not desirable?

Thanks,
