Hi Open Source Diversity community,
I am organizing a 60m audio/video call for interest in joining an international organizing team for an online open source D&I summit. If you are interested, please fill in this meeting poll for a date/time in mid-August:
Per recent discussion with @kristi and others at GNOME GUADEC 2020, we floated the idea of a global open source D&I summit to gather like-minded folks to discuss issues, topics, and learnings focused on diversity and inclusion in open source communities. There are folks in other communities (GNOME, Fedora, potentially others) who have expressed interest.
So, let’s talk about making this real! What can we do for an international open source D&I event? What is the best format? What kinds of topics do we want to cover? What might participation looks like? Let’s start working through these problems to organize something online in late 2020 or early 2021.
Next week, I will announce the date/time for the open meeting for anyone who wishes to join. You do not have to be an existing active member to participate in this call.
Let me know if you have any questions in the meanwhile! Looking forward to seeing where this discussion goes.
