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