You wonder why women are so few in the Free and Open Source area? You feel like the situation can change? On September 30th, in Paris, come to debate these questions!

The Open World Forum in Paris (September 30th – October 1st) will host in this year’s 2010 edition a think tank called “Open Diversity Summit: Why women matter?“:

Free Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) is fundamentally changing
the IT industry. It is undoubtedly a tremendous success, both in
economic and social terms. However FLOSS still faces gender
inequality, to an even greater extent than the wider IT industry which
itself is seen as an area where discrimination is widespread. This
summit will showcase approaches to tackling gender diversity from
across the Open Source world.

The Gender Equality and Diversity Team (OWF-GED), of which some WoMoz members have taken part in, are proud to present these panels this year.

The entrance is free, however registration is necessary: http://www.openworldforum.org/attend/agenda/diversity-summit-why-women-matter

So if you are in the area and this topic interests you, please don’t hesitate to hop by!

    the links to the agenda are broken and I can’t find the panel on the schedule. Does it have a different title?
