We Support the Black Community

We are listening. We are learning.

Agile Alliance stands firmly and wholeheartedly in support of the Black community, and in the ongoing fight for racial justice and equity around the world. Racial injustice has no place in our organization and our community.

As we are committed to supporting people who explore and apply Agile, valuing “individuals and interactions” is at the core of what we do. This idea goes beyond our work in software — it’s the basis of human dignity itself.

Agile2020 Will Not Move Online

After much reflection, the Agile Alliance Board of Directors has made the very difficult decision that Agile2020 — the largest annual global gathering of Agile practitioners — will not be reshaped into a virtual conference. We are unable to replicate the premier international event for the advancement of Agile software development in an online environment and foster the immersive experience that attendees from more than 50 countries treasure year after year.

Agile2020 Update

The Agile Alliance Board of Directors has unanimously decided that the physical Agile2020 conference cannot take place. Our first priority is the health and safety of all. Our mission has not changed and we are exploring avenues for the Agile community to share the program that has been recently announced. We don’t yet know what that looks like. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this new reality.
