Below is the relevant section of the values page.  The difference between the 
two of them concerns race, nationality, ethnicity, ability, and "background" 
and "walks of life" (whatever those two may mean).  I think it would be best 
to have these statements be the same and to not include anything which doesn't 
have a clear meaning.  Also a generic "and other differences" might be 
appropriate.  I think that the omission of ability in the above is 

# People of all ages, genders, nationalities, ethnicities, backgrounds,
# abilities and walks of life are part of the communities we serve. We respect
# and encourage diversity at our conferences, events, and other activities.


The Dreamwidth statement is worth reading for inspiration.
