CHAOSS D&I Workgroup


(Georg Link (he/him)) #1

Background
CHAOSS D&I Workgroup’s main goal focuses on understanding from a qualitative and quantitative point of view how diversity and inclusion can be measured. This will bring four main outcomes:

  • First a set of metrics curated by the community focused on understanding and measuring diversity
  • Second learn good practices from open source communities on improving their diversity and inclusion
  • Third produce useful software to measure diversity from a quantitative point of view. This is expected to produce generic software to analyze several repositories of information such as Git repositories or Mailing lists
  • Fourth, good practices on how to deal with such data, maintain and ways of collaboration with open source communities.
  • Fifth, a method that other communities can reproduce the report for themselves.

Contributor Type
Anyone who has an interest in measuring diversity and inclusion in open source can help us.
