While it is well recognized that diversity and inclusion are central to the health of open source communities, numbers lag and the ability to foster inclusive environments remains challenging. The CHAOSS Project’s Diversity & Inclusion Workgroup is focused on establishing a set of community-curated, peer-validated, research-informed standards and best practices to measure, and in turn, increase, diversity and inclusion across open source communities. Join us to learn about insights from our work and progress we’ve made against our objectives to date. Help shape this work by telling us how you encourage and achieve diversity and inclusion, or plan to, in your own communities. Let’s work together to make our collective open source communities more welcoming, broader and heterogeneous.
