Open source is the foundation on which the Internet is built. For its continued success, it's critical to incorporate diverse voices and engage people with different experiences, talents, and viewpoints. Otherwise we risk a world of technology created by, and supporting, a non-inclusive and hostile monoculture.
Together we can make things better. OS4W aims to be a resource for connecting all women, including women of color and transgender women, to open source projects that are welcoming, inclusive, and appreciative of diversity in their contributors.
Let's start changing things and making the world of open source a better place for everyone.
Some of the things we will help with include:
- Finding mentorships.
- Finding pair programming partners.
- Finding open source projects that are welcoming, inclusive, and appreciative of diversity in their contributors.
