In order to improve the diversity of the Symfony community we need to work on two main topics: 1) become more diversity friendly and 2) attracting and integrating people from marginalized communities. As possible next steps several ideas have been collected and added to the new [diversity repository](https://github.com/symfony/diversity). All community members are invited to add their own ideas, add comments to existing ideas or champion ideas to bring them to life!
