After revisiting the 3rd paragraph, I deduced that the author's two main points in their argument were 1)conference's discrimination along educational & economic lines and 2) conference's lack of genuine diversity. So, I looked for answers that would weaken either of those two claims. I was stuck between A & B because they both looked attractive in addressing those claims, but then re-read A, which states "Participants in computer conferences are generally more accepting of diversity than is the population at large." -- To be accepting of diversity doesn't mean your conference is diverse. Thus, I stuck with B. Although I didn't think B was that strong in weakening the argument, it does weaken the first claim, even if just by a little bit (but more importantly, more than all the other answer choices).
Any feedback on my approach / thought process, or noting anything else I missed, would be helpful!
