Open Source: Diversifying the Initiative

By Jocelyn Harper

Open Source: Diversifying the Initiative

The industry as a whole talks about diversity and inclusiveness, but what are the applicable steps to take as a whole? How can we apply these measures to the open source community and successfully push ourselves forward? In this talk, I will talk about why diversity and inclusion matters, how to vet organizations that claim to uplift and promote the under marginalized, and active steps that you can take as an individual to participate and support your marginalized peers.
