It’s no secret that female presence has always been there, but most of the times we don’t know due a lack of info. Several years ago a Wiki page started where the idea was to have a list of those Women who can provide advice and help to those new young contributors starting on our community.
I’m happily reading that Bee(IRC nick : bee2502), who is part of the Fedora Community Operations Team(#fedora-commops on IRC) has kick off a “Call for action”, where we expect that all females that live in Fedora can put their names on our wiki and make us have an easier work on gathering and spreading information related to our interests. As Bee says on her email:“Diversity in Fedora is a discussion that has resurfaced in the past few months, including the creation of a Fedora Diversity Adviser, a position currently held by María “tatica” Leandro. As part of the objectives identified by the Fedora Council, an initiative to promote Fedora to new contributors of various backgrounds is being emphasized for 2016.
Fedora Women is central to this effort for increasing diversity. However, to get an understanding of our current strengths and weaknesses – we’re going to need hard data about our community, its composition, and their priorities and interests, so that we can test hypotheses, and then create and execute a strategy. A good start in this direction seems like adding your FAS details to the list of existing women contributors in Fedora on the Fedora Women Wiki page – which has just eight women contributors listed currently !”So don’t wait any second and please, fill your name in our wiki!
