Women commentS

  • The sexist tone in the channels demotivates their participation

  • Women feel a systematic target of discrimination in the channels

  • Attention calls are usually attacked (if they are women)

  • The expression of experience is not accepted, women are considered as novice

  • We need to define codes, sanctions, reporting mechanisms

  • Specific calls to empower women

  • Promotion of women networks and spaces, to empowerment

  • Peer-to-peer training

  • Attention to mapping-projects issues with impact on women

 

men commentS

  • Discrimination is not based on gender

  • Cultural domination of European / North American men

  • Hostility by specific profile: fanatic-mapper, experimented VS novice

  • No formal impediment to participate = no discrimination

  • Lack of interest/participation must be respected

  • Doubts on the impact in the map, of the lack of diversitY

  • Attention calls about agressive tone in the channels are ignored

  • Do not separate genders but do more participatory activities

  • Do not victimize women, raise awareness in general

  • Focus activities on diversity in general, not just gender


GENERAL COMMENTS

  • Hostility is general in OSM channels, generally from high level mappers, it demotivates participation

  • All genders notice specific hostility towards people asking to change the tone

  • Need for moderation in channels

  • Need to advocate for courtesy values in general, integration, support of the novice

  • Need for integration of diversity in general, not based on gender

  • Inclusive language

  • Define codes of conduct

  • Awareness against hierarchies
